Exciting News

So, there will definitely be a continuation of this blog because...

This summer I'm heading to Singapore!

I received an offer for an internship with the American Chamber of Commerce. It is a 9-week position from June 5th to August 6th. Here's the description of the internship:

The Yale intern, depending on his/her background and career interests, would likely support the AmCham team in one of two key areas - either on events mangement (helping staff produce the Chamber's briefings, networking events, and other activities) or on the government relations/policy side, assisting staff with liaison work with AmCham's industry committees, the US/Singaporean governments, and putting together regional trade missions that AmCham leads. In addition to these areas, the intern would also assist with various administrative responsibilities in support of the Chamber's activities, and might also work with staff across departments, depending on the needs of the organization.

From what I've heard, Singapore is an amazing city - it's full of energy, culture, and diversity, and yet is orderly, clean, and safe. There will also be opportunities to travel to and explore nearby countries such as Malaysia and Thailand. I am so grateful for this opportunity and I definitely will be blogging about the whole experience, so stick with me!
