"Living and working in Dublin, Ireland, was a great learning experience for me. The people are fantastic and the country side is even more beautiful than the pictures. I worked as a graphic designer and I learned an incredible amount from my co-workers. I still e-mail them today to bounce off creative ideas or ask them questions about our field. My own personal strength was challenged, and ultimately I've learned that it takes perseverance, in any walk of life, to be successful. I am currently working as a graphic designer in Minnesota, and I can say that my internship had a large influence on being hired over my competition. It shows drive and self-motivation to live and intern abroad."
