Looking Back

My international experience was something that doesn’t feel real but I know has had a profound effect on myself professionally and personally. When I look back on it now, it feels as though it didn’t happen and it was quick but while it was happening it was long and made up of great memories I…

Saying Goodbye to Dublin

This final week was very bittersweet. Part of me feels as though it is time to go home, relax before school starts and finally see my family and friends but another big part will miss this city and the people I met here so much. I tried to balance having fun and soaking up the…

Swimming in Ireland!

I am just now realizing that my time in Dublin is coming to an end which is a very sad reality. This week I tried to make the most of my time with my friends and the city, trying new places and exploring more. During work this week we got to make a very fun…

London and Leadership

This past week I got to spend some time outside of the office with one of my Irish coworkers. We got to see a small concert at a local venue together, along with another intern in the office. Luckily, the singer was good friend’s with my coworker and we got to speak with him after…

Working in Dublin

This second week has been amazing because I am moving out of the adjustment period more and more. Instead, I am starting to feel more at ease and able to get around a little bit easier on my own. Dublin I’ve realized is very lively, most hours of the day, and the sun is out…

Getting Ready to Work

This first week in Dublin has been a very welcoming experience. I’ve been able to visit different tourist spots that are just the beginning of my time here. I’m hoping as I continue to live and work in the city I’ll be able to discover more places off the beaten path. For the people of…
