This was an incredibly beneficial internship, which have me the opportunity to develop myself professionally whilst also working alongside likeminded people and meeting inspiring figures from within the local community. The role involved tackling various challenges that arose when starting up new enterprises in a developing country and has given me a great grounding in a variety of aspects of business, from marketing to supply chain and pricing. At the same time, it gave me a chance to explore a beautiful part of the world and immerse myself in a new culture. It’s also helped massively in terms of helping my career prospects, giving my CV a massive boost and also playing a big part in enabling my to secure a graduate role. The internship is at times daunting and is not without its challenges but is without doubt one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done, and I would 100% recommend it to people of any age or experience.
