Student Testimonials about Internships
Passant El Attar, an Egyptian national, did a journalism internship at SwissStyle Magazine in Geneva:
"During my internship, I learned about the magazine publishing process - from brainstorming an idea, to article writing, to interviewing people, to the work involving images and the editorial process, all the way to the final publication. I really developed my writing skills further. This internship provided a great transition from the academic style of writing to the magazine style of writing. It gave me the opportunity to see how my skills and talents fare in the real world and, by giving me the chance to try different things, helped me see which career path I am most interested in following."
Danitza Fils-Aimé, a Swiss national originally from Haiti, graduated from Webster University with a BA in International Relations. Danitza was put in contact with the Fondation Althea through Webster Geneva's Career Services Office. She did a 6 month internship with Fondation Althea. The internship included a 10-day field trip to Morocco, where Danitza worked with a team of healthcare professionals who provided ophthalmological care to children in areas located approximately 1000 km from Casablanca.
Here's what Danitza had to say about her internship experience:
"This internship is proof for me that I want to work with children in the humanitarian field. Being in the field is really what I want to do with my life. Some of the children's sight was so bad, that they could not partake in play or go to school. It was wonderful to see them after they had received their glasses. Now that they can see, a new life is starting for them; they can play and learn. This work helped me to gain more self confidence in myself. It also taught me that I can work very well independently."
