As a 10th grade student at the French International School, my school requires us to do a 2-week internship anywhere we desire to help us develop our business skills in today’s global economy. This training is part of the school French program and is integral part of the 10th grade student curriculum. I chose to do my internship with the IMFFA, not simply because they were the only one I applied to, but for other reasons too. I had an interview two weeks prior to the internship to get to know the co-chairs and the project manager. They assured me that this would be a fun and productive internship.
I was not worried about starting my first day thanks to the welcoming and warm atmosphere created by the IMFFA. The work they gave me was varied. I helped them finalize their annual picnic and the Marketing Your Entrepreneurial Business event. I also worked on their website and general media. Overall, the work I have done was interesting; it truly helped me get a good sense of everything the IMFFA does.
In addition, it also gave me a chance to spend more time with my mom. I took the metro with her every morning, we walked to the IMF, and I waited in her office until I had to go to work. And I would go back home with her.
I wanted to thank my mom for helping me get the internship and the great people at the IMFFA for giving me this opportunity.
