Fourteen American undergraduates, many of whom have never been abroad, stepped outside their comfort zone in order to pursue summer internships overseas as part of the Cultural Vistas Fellowship in 2018. Fellows interned in Berlin, Buenos Aires, and for the first time as part of this flagship program: Hong Kong.
During their eight weeks abroad, Jay’Len, Donovan, Amanda, and Nora gained confidence and newfound professional skills while interning at organizations ranging from Mission for Migrant Workers to Run Our City.
They also learned what it takes to adjust to and navigate life in a new city. Here are some tips tricks of the trade they learned during their Cultural Vistas Fellowship.
