Tschüss Berlin

The trip in Berlin is finally complete and I have arrived home after a long and stressful journey back. My final week in Berlin was absolutely amazing, yet exhausting. I was working every moment to explore the amazing city that I called home for the past 2 months in as much detail and time as possible…

Goodbye to my State of Origin, NSW

It’s been nearly two weeks since my GBI Sydney Sports Business Program ended, so I’ve had time to share my stories and pictures with friends and family, as well as reflect on the experience as a whole. The length of the program was perfect for me, being that I wanted a meaningful internship this summer,…

Cheers.

There’s no question that my time in London was the best seven weeks of my life. As I reflect on my trip back home in Philadelphia, I feel nothing but gratitude for everyone who made this trip possible.  Because London is one of the most, if not the most, diverse cities in the world, I…

Transformation

My post trek goal is to be transformed from the experience. I was asked during the program weather i had been transformed by the experience. I did not put much thought in to the response until i had some time to reflect. Now my answer is no not yet. While i may have implemented some…

Never stop learning

My trekking experience through the Himalayas of Northern India provided me with an extreme amount of learning. Lots of this learning came through the guided reflection that our group took part in every day. Hearing six other prospectives on the events of each day provided me with a lot of prospective on other people feelings…

Do I have to go back inside?

I am certain that I will be thinking about the past 12 days of my life for years to come. Our journey started near the base of the Rupin River Valley when we were dropped off by a few Jeeps. Our fresh crew eagerly pitched out tents and settled in to our sleeping bags early….

How can it be over all ready?

The last week of my internship may have actually been the most challenging for me. As I described in my last post I had to complete a very large project before the end of the week and I had to do so under challenging circumstances working from home. It seems silly complaining about be able…

The Path to a Better Asa

I’ve been back in the US for a week and a half now and while I have mixed feelings about returning to the northern hemisphere, I’m glad to be back. The seven weeks of academic programming was a perfect length of time to experience Australia and the extra week afterward, spent in the surrounds and…

再见, Moving to Shanghai

We’ve been in Shanghai for a little over a week now (I’m publishing this way past when I wrote it because VPN’s and things) and I’m still so excited to be here. Every time we go to the Bund and see the skyline of the financial district it hits me that we’re really in China…
