Bad news people, my internship has unfortunately come to an end and it’s time for another chapter in my study career.
I can absolutely not believe how fast these 8 weeks went by. On the one hand I feel like I have been here for 5 minutes, figural speaking. On the other hand I feel like I’ve been here for ages since I pretty much feel at home here.
Way to many memories and a lot of experiences to all type them out. But I’ve learned so much in my precious time here. My English has improved, my writing skills have improved, I know how to make a good presentations, …
It’s true what they say: you can learn so much at school, but you’ll only know how to use that knowledge until you actually try it out. Which is why an internship is the best way to prepare you for the ‘real’ world.
At DAA you get a lot of responsibility and various assignments you can work on and you can add assignments yourself if you’d like to do something special. All of my your work is being checked, for example my articles were read through by Ninette and she sent me back the checked version so I could reread them and know what I could do better or where I made a language mistake. I’ve got so many tips that made my writing a lot better!
I am going to miss this place, the cats, the smoothies, Ninette and Péke, … but it’s not the end of the world, since I’m definitely coming around to help out DAA with a few things, and to just have a chat over here.
Working at DAA is not only doing something good for the world, it also makes you a better person. You get to know yourself, what you are best at and what you can do better. My internship was just amazing! Thank you very much DAA!
