International Summer Intern
Hello, I’m Alice. I am a summer intern here at National Healthy Start Association (NHSA) from Jun 10th to Aug 10th. I come from China, and this is my first time to abroad. I soon realized it’s not so easy to be so far away from home and when you don’t have friends to enjoy life with, it’s simply horrible! Fortunately, the colleagues in NHSA are very nice and friendly, and I feel just like having another family 🙂 –It really helps with being less homesick!
The work of my internship is not difficult. Although it seems to be simple, it still requires being patient and thoughtful to recognize handwriting and review news. I try my best to do my work well and I hope I can learn more from this internship.
Before coming to Washington D.C., I thought it was a bustling city just like Hong Kong. However, I changed my mind after living there for one week. I think it is a livable and comfortable city as you can see a lot of people drink coffee, chat, and enjoy sunshine after work. Work is just work, after working time, it’s time to enjoy life and have fun. However, the situation in Hong Kong is very different. Hong Kong is a crowded city, and the majority of people look in a hurry and seem to have a lot of work to do all the time. I prefer the life style of Washington D.C. and I hope I can enjoy a cup of coffee and chat with friends one day here.
