My Travel Story

by: Joshua Boileau Start Date: Dec 21, 2015 - End Date: Apr 18, 2016
I am a 2nd year International Business student at Algonquin College in Ottawa, Ontario. I have aspirations of working abroad and with this internship I will gain hands-on experience that is invaluable.

I was searching for new and exciting ways to add to my resume. Upon looking at internships I noticed that Algonquin College helps acclimate students with opportunities in the nation's capital and abroad. 

With my research of internships around the world I came upon World Internships where I was immediately directed to the right location. I wanted to go to India, but due to bureaucratic issues, I could not go. I was then given other possibilities of which include Nepal, China, South Africa, Ireland, Italy, and a few others. 

South Africa became a prominent choice due to the deep cultural roots to acclaimed people such as Nelson Mandela and Desmond Tutu. I became enthralled in the idea and started to research more and more. 

South Africa it was!

Please feel free to share my campaign on your social networks! 

Thank you to everyone for helping me on my journey.

    When I first created this campaign I quickly generated a dollar amount for an internship in India. Since then, the country changed to South Africa due to bureaucratic reasons. I apologize for any confusion.
