Throughout the Haller Global Honors Fellowship, I visited about a dozen companies and was able to develop an understanding for the type of work environment I hope to have in the future. I would love to work in an environment similar to those at Thinkhouse and FirstSip, both were marketing agencies that focused on promoting young talent. From a professional perspective, I learned that functioning in an exciting work environment is essential for my success and happiness in a job.
Throughout these last 4 weeks, I learned how to find happiness in challenging situations. For example, after jet lag kicked in during a day that only allowed for a few hours of sleep, I was able to overcome the grumpy tiredness and have a great time visiting the cliffs of Moher and Galway.
