Quote: “I believe that there is no better place to develop myself than in the United States since I have been studying about international relations for 4 years now. I am eager to prove myself and I am very much interested in gaining hands-on knowledge because it will ultimately complement my theoretical knowledge. I hope that I can use the experience gained during this internship whether in public administration or in the private sector. My dream for the future is to work in connection with the United States, foreign affairs and public service.”
