Hello, my name is Alissa Seislove and welcome to my blog! I am a rising senior at the University of Pittsburgh, majoring in marketing and pursuing a certificate in international business. This summer, I will be participating in the GBI London program where I will be taking an urban studies course and interning at a marketing company.
I am from Allentown, Pennsylvania which is about an hour from Philadelphia and I look forward to spending a few weeks abroad! I have never been to London or anywhere in Europe before. I chose this program because London is such a central location for business, and I knew I can have a great internship experience there. Also, it is very accessible to other countries that I want to explore while I’m there.
My biggest worries are getting lost while I’m still trying to learn my way around the city and not having enough time to see everything in the six week time period. London and the surrounding countries have so much to offer that it will be impossible to see it all during the program, but I hope to be able to see as much as I can since this is a once in a lifetime opportunity.
I look forward to updating this blog to share my experiences with you!
