It was my best summer ever to have my internship at YMCA Camp in the U.S.! As an over-night camp counsellor, I ran outdoor programs for children aged from 7 to 16 and closely took care of them to have great experience at the camp. I experienced the big differences of education style and working culture between HK and US which inspired me a lot. Apart from the internship, it was also a good opportunity to travel several fabulous cities like San Francisco, Las Vegas, and Los Angeles with my dear classmates. I have grown a lot by experiencing an awesome summer."

It was an unforgettable experience at Club Med as an intern. As I was given opportunities to experience different new tasks. Since Club Med is a well-known resort located in many places around the world. It provides a list of services and activities, such as food and beverage, facilities, sports activities and entertainment shows. During this internship, I was so glad that I could be a part of its circus team, it was the great challenge for me since I had no past related experience in this field. However, I felt pleased when I completed my first circus performance. This is definitely a fruitful and amazing memory in my life.

During my past summer semester break, I went to Camp Taiwan for my internship. I worked as a counselor at the camp for 10 weeks. As English as main medium, we uses English whenever communicating with other campers or the staff. It was a good time for me to train my English listening and speaking skills. As being a counselor, my job was to design and lead youth and teen campers to experience natural beauty and outdoor activities like zip line, canoeing, or river tracing. After my summer internship, I found myself leadership skills, communication skills, as well as self-confident to improve. This Oversea internship will be marked as unforgettable experiences in my life!
