How did you find this internship opportunity?
I was searching for an internship during my semester break on the internet. The GTCC was one of my first strike, so I applied and got back an answer with the commitment very fast.
What specific skills do you have that would enhance your assignments at GTCC?
It is always not easy to describe yourself or talk about the skills you have. But I would say that I am able to work in a team. Working well with others to achieve common goals is important for almost every task in a company.
Also, I would describe myself as an organized person. Managing the time for different assignments or setting priorities is not that hard for me.
What are your plans/goals for the future after internship completion?
Following my internship, I plan to visit the north of Thailand: Chiang Mai, Chiang Rai and Pai. If you have lived in Bangkok for 10 weeks, you need a place to calm down (or where you can inhale fresh air) and the North with its nature is perfect to do so.
But I don’t want to travel around the whole time, my plan is to help in a children’s home which is located in a small town named Phrao. The children’s home aims to support hilltribe kids to learn how to read or to speak the Thai language so they will not get discriminated or treated poorly. During the time in Thailand, I have learned how good my life in Germany is and that is why I want to assist in the children’s home.
Another goal after my internship is to finish my bachelor’s degree. Also, I expect from my internship to find out in which branch of study I would like to specialize in the future: Engineering or business management. I think at the moment there are no other big goals in my life.
How would you spend your free time in Thailand?
Get to know new people from all over the world, travel through Thailand with other GTCC interns, visit one of the 100 sky bars in Bangkok, try Thai food until you got a food coma, go to see the beautiful temples, party until early morning, get ill because of the aircon, rent a motorbike and drive it like Thai people, and just enjoy every day in this marvelous, crazy country.
