What Interns Say
I had a great time in Chengdu, the internship was very inteesting and exciting. I had problems with the VISA sometimes but SII and my colleagues always found a solution. Through SII, I got contact with the other trainees in the city very easily. There are so many highlights that it is difficult to point out just one. I met many people and make many friends, I was also able to travel a lot which was very cool. Throughout, it was a lifetime experience.
Even though I thought coming to China will be a challenge and I set minimum expectations, it turned up to be one of the best decisions I have made.
The company that SII guided me towards is a fountain of learning and is fun.
Moreover, discovering the Chinese culture, the wonderful people and some breathtaking landscapes left me with only one thing to say. Go to China and you will see the world with different eyes.
I had a great stay in Chengdu thanks to the SII’s staffs like Lily, Aline and Royi, of course. Most of all, I had a blast within my internship. The mission was interesting and my mentor was very thoughtful.
