Olli from Finland starts an internship in China

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1.jpeg  “I am 32 and from Kuopio, Finland. What is unique about my hometown? Well, a certain well-known figure, Santa Claus, is from Finland and we have a very strong sauna culture.  Something interesting I’ve done so far in life is make a documentary of Iceland. In terms of my educational background, I studied International business in both Finland and Australia. While in school, I wanted to work at an embassy but later on in my career, when I actually did, I didn’t like it.  I will be interning at a virtual currency, trade and commerce company.  Although I don’t know what kind of work I’ll be doing exactly, I hope to learn some transferrable skills and meet new people.  I chose China because this country seems to be a major hotspot. I randomly found Gi2C and was interested to learn more about this country that was rich in culture. I’m...

Anna from Poland interns in China

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150217-112715_1.jpg Originally, I am from Poland but I’ve lived for the last 8 years in Bristol, England.   Something interesting about my hometown is that we have a fortress, which is several times bigger than the Tower of London. I am 28 and used to work in a classified documents office. For my personal achievements, I hitchhiked 1200km in Poland and bungee jumped from 56 meters. I have a master’s degree in Sociology with a focus on social communication and market research. In Poland, a master’s degree is considered basic education. I am not very good at math and in my country it means that you will have great difficulty to find a good paying job, so I thought focusing on market research might increase my chances in the job market. I’m interning at a Chinese company which is building cryptocurrency platforms. (Bitcoin was the first cryptocurrency.) This company combines social...

QY’s Gi2C Internship

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1.jpg I am from Shenzhen in the south of China.  It is a young coastal city full of people coming from different places. I guess growing up in a culturally diversified place teaches you how to understand differences. People are more open in this type of environment and I am glad that I grew up with that kind of influence around me. I am 23 years old and the most interesting thing I’ve done so far in my life is travelling and studying in different places around the world. I’ve been able to see different cultures and to complete my academics. This international experience has always been very exciting to me. I was most recently studying in Australia and majoring in economics and finance. The reason why I chose this area was because, these days, they are hot topics and I did not know much about them.  I am interested in...

Amy From Australia Interns in the Real Estate and Investment Industry

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1_20150209-082829_1.png I am from Adelaide, South Australia. Adelaide is a small city in Australia and is renowned as: ‘The Festival City’ for the many festivals and events that are held there and ‘The City of Churches’ for the large array of old, new and in between churches to celebrate the multicultural society.  I am 25 and have just spent 6.5 weeks backpacking throughout Europe and the UK. My highlight was visiting Reykjavik, Iceland which allowed me the chance to ride a five gaited Icelandic purebred horse (also my first time on a horse), climb ice glaciers and experience one of the most spectacular places on earth. I have completed a double business degree of a Bachelor of Management Marketing and a Bachelor of Tourism and Event Management. In my 3.5 year Gap year between High School and University, I worked as Wedding Coordinator at a country club, this gave me a...

Meet Gherardo! New Gi2C Finance Intern from Italy.

b2ap3_thumbnail_image1.png Gherardo grew up in a small Italian town with a huge reputation. Cortina d’Ampezzo, which is known for its beautiful mountains, is also touted for being a “winter sports mecca”. As a result, 23-year-old Gherardo loves to ski and mountain bike among other active winter and summer sports. Sadly, China is not known for being a ski destination so Gherardo will have to give up his favorite activity during his internship. However, China is infamous for other activities such as ping-pong so now might just be the perfect time to learn some new sports! He studied business and economics because of the large number of opportunities that this major provides. Fluent in Italian and English, Gherardo is also learning German. However, he probably won’t be adding in Mandarin at this point in time as learning more than one language at once is quite confusing.  Many China interns from around the...
