New Gi2C Intern, Henry, begins his China internship

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150516-091756_1.jpeg I am from York in the north of England. York is unusual in the UK because it is incredibly ancient. It is of strategic importance because it is halfway between London and Scotland. It has a castle with complete walls all the way around the city that are 2000 years old. I’m 24 years old and something cool I have done in my life so far is to live in South Africa and train elephants. I went to school in London and studied microbiology and business management. Science is fascinating to me as I’m a very curious person. I will be interning at a finance company that focuses on wealth management. I excited to learn more about Asia business culture. China was my go-to internship destination because it is a superpower and will become even more relevant. China is big and busy. That’s the best way to describe it. I...

Rafael from Brazil about his Gi2C Internship

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150512-055104_1.jpeg I’m from Belo Horizonte, Brazil.  One unique thing about Brazil is the great weather during the entire year and also the kind way that people treat each other, especially foreigners.  I’m 22 and have lived in Canada during high school and France for one semester during university. I studied International Affairs in Brazil and chose this area due to my huge interest in other cultures and passion to go abroad. I will be interning at a pharmaceutical company which operates mostly in developing countries. Their main products are vaccines and medicines.  They are currently looking for partners around the world and working with local governments. I will be focused on export documentation and international marketing tasks such as finding new markets and making sure the products are in accordance with local laws.  My goal for this internship is to gain more experience in international trade and increase my network and...

New Gi2C Intern Review: Jendrik’s China Internship in Finance

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150501-093626_1.jpeg I´m from Ellwangen, a city next to Stuttgart, the capital city of Baden-Württemberg. Ellwangen is located in one federal state in the southwest of Germany. It´s a very small but historical city with an old castle and wall remains in its inner city. It was a great place to grow up, because I had both city life and nature nearby as well as the opportunity to explore a lot of sports. Now I´m 24 years old, sporty and have work experience in different areas. After I did my A-level, I worked as a volunteer in an ambulance team for a year. After I finished that, I decided to move to Berlin, the capital city of Germany, and started my study. I´m studying Finance Management in Berlin and am in my last semester. During my study, I have worked in an institute and learned practical experience. While participating in a seminar,...

New Gi2C Intern Review: Shanen from Indonesia starts Interning in China

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150423-061313_1.jpeg I’m originally from Indonesia, but I went to a Canadian university in Toronto. Something unique about Toronto would be its harsh icy winter that can get as low as –38 degrees Celsius! I am 20 years old, going on 21 this year. I’ve lived half of my life all by myself studying abroad in Singapore and Canada, so I’ve been exposed to different cultures and all sorts of languages! That being said, it has made me more flexible and easily adaptable which is always a bonus when working abroad in a totally new place, which in my case, is China. I studied Finance in Toronto and I find that it’s such a fun and dynamic subject of studies and we just suit each other. I am interning at an investment and financial advisory firm that focuses on AU, NZ and China business relationships such as investments, market entry, etc. The...
