Theodore Whal from Metropolitan State University shares his experience as an intern hero in Madrid, Spain while completing an Entrepreneurship internship.
After my Papa died in March, I thought it would be a good time to get away and make him proud. I chose to intern in Madrid because I felt an internship in an English-speaking country would not be challenging enough and I had some previous knowledge on different Spanish speaking countries and the language from school. As an Intern Hero, my internship was my number one priority every day before, during and after Madrid. However, I can’t say the adventure travel mindset wasn’t hitting the priority list either; because it most definitely was. I knew that my internship was going to shape my career and help me dive into this idea of international business, and additionally, how I see a future for myself in the field.
