  • WOOM, Intern, 2019 (Madrid, Spain) – I had the opportunity to intern at WOOM while completing my semester abroad in Madrid. During my time there, I translated company marketing materials, proofread blog posts, and helped create social media content.
  • SocialWay eServices, Digital Marketing Intern, 2018 (Nicosia, Cyprus) – USD’s Student International Business Council gave me this incredible opportunity to intern in Cyprus when I was a freshman. It encouraged me to further pursue opportunities with an international focus.
