Saying Goodbye to London

Spending six weeks in one of the most global cities in the world has been an experience I will never forget. Part of me thinks six weeks was not nearly enough time, and I really wish that the program was not coming to an end. It was extremely difficult to do everything I wanted to…

My Favorite Things

This summer has truly been the most amazing experience of my entire life. I feel incredibly blessed and grateful to have had this unbelievable opportunity. I have learned so much about Britain, Europe in general, the accounting industry, and, most importantly, myself. There are definitely lots of things I will miss, mainly moments. I have…

Interning Internationally

After working at Anderson Tours for nearly six weeks now, I feel confident that I can now talk about all aspects of the internship in an accurate way. The start of my internship was a little bit stressful, and nothing went according to plan in the beginning. Because I was out of the country at…

My British Favo(u)rites

With my time in London coming to an end next week, I can’t help but think back to the best things I’ve done here that I know I’m going to miss. Although going back to New York will be nice because it will finally feel like summer, I am not ready to leave all of…

Life on the Underground

The final week of this program is fast approaching, and the sadness is starting to settle in. The last month has been incredible and I will be so sad to leave London as the experience I have had here has far surpassed expectations. I have adapted fully now to life in the city and am…
