This summer, professionally, I got the chance to learn a tremendous amount about the digital marketing and technology landscape in China, both sparking new interest and deepening existing ones. I was also able to develop my research skills and learn more about consulting, both of which will bode well in my future career plans. On a more personal level, this opportunity has truly helped me grow. In navigating the ups and downs of working in a country I've never set foot in before and completely immersing myself in a Chinese-speaking environment, I was able to really stretch myself beyond my comfort zone and develop new perspectives along the way. These experiences will be cherished as one of the best in my life.
