A Look Back

Partaking in the University of Pittsburgh’s Summer 2022 International Internship Program has been and honor and a privilege I will remember for the rest of my life, and am so grateful to have been allowed such an opportunity. For 8 weeks I was a marketing intern for Intrepid Spirits, a spirits company that manages many…

Farewell, Dublin!

My last week in Dublin has brought many different waves of emotions. Part of me is thrilled to be reunited with family and a sense of general familiarity, but the rest of me will miss everything that living in Dublin has blessed me with. This final week my friends and I took the time to…

Where Did All the Time Go?

I cannot believe I am about to enter my last week of my internship! Eight entire weeks at this company have resulted in long days, but incredibly fast weeks. Although very excited to be finishing up so I can travel with my family and head back home to Philly, I am saddened by the thought…

Growing & Adapting

What a great week! I am so happy to be seeing such sunny and warm days in Dublin, with even more coming in this next week. Never have I ever thought I would be excited to get a sunburn, but here we are! Very early Friday morning my friends and I began our venture from…

Rocks & Hard Skills

This past weekend my friend and I took a tour bus to Cork City and Blarney Castle! Despite knowing some of…

Asking Questions is Always a Good Idea

I am so happy to have another week in Dublin, and another week in my marketing internship, under my belt. This past weekend my friends and I took a trip to Galway and the Cliffs of Moher! It was an absolute blast and my favorite trip I’ve made here so far. After work on Friday…

It’s Only Embarrassing if You’re Embarrassed.

Good evening from Dublin! This weekend I traveled to London to visit one of my close friends, as well as to see Harry Styles at Wembley Stadium. Seeing one of my favorite artists at one of the most iconic venues in the world was unforgettable and I have so many memories from that day that…

Stepping Out of What is Comfortable

An exciting week in the books! I mean this literally after I visited the Book of Kells and Trinity College’s stunning library. My friends and I also got a taste of home when we saw Waitress the Musical at the Bor Gais theatre after work on Wednesday. It was very entertaining to hear British actors…

First Week in Dublin!

I cannot believe it has already been a week since my red eye flight from Philadelphia to Dublin! This week I settled into my accommodation at University College Dublin where I met my amazing roommates, started exploring parts of city centre (including some great pubs and shops), went grocery shopping for the essentials, and went…
