Berlin, I miss you!

Over the past two weeks, after having physically (but not quite emotionally) adjusted to being back home, I have reflected on how my experiences in Berlin impacted me and my continuously developing views on the importance of being a global citizen.  In my time at Pitt so far, I have had two previous invaluable opportunities…

Final: New Chapter

I didn’t realize that two weeks have already passed since my internship and today is the due date of this post. I’m now writing this post on the plane to Chengdu from Shanghai. But seating on the plane and waiting for take-off for 1hr30min already, we were just told that the plane is unable to…

Reflection Post

My two months in Berlin was a period in which I experienced a lot of individual growth. To start, I learned a lot from my internship. I have built upon my technical skills, especially in excel, and have gained a greater confidence in contributing within a work environment. Often times my tasks required a lot…

Reflection

I can honestly say that my time in Berlin was the best 2 months of my life thus far. Living outside of the US for an extended period of time not only opened my eyes to the world around me, but also made me think critically about how I live at home and at school….

To Sum Things Up

The Last Assignment

I know that this blog is supposed to be all about how I grew, but I want to add this little preface about the opposite. While in Germany, I lost about 28 pounds and have probably taken almost 5 inches off of my waistline. Okay, now that I’ve said that I can continue. Professionally, I…

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…

Final Week

For my final week I completed the rest of the business plans for the site visits for my company. We visited both Dresden and a site in Berlin in the last week. My coworkers took me out for a good-bye dinner in Berlin at a really nice restaurant. It was a bitter sweet moment to…

Environmental Contexts

Currently on my fourth attempt at writing this, but at least I’m at home to write about my abroad experience. I really wish that I could turn off the auto save feature, because it’s only deleted progress over the last two months. This week’s blogpost is about using context clues to solve issues. And I…
