              "It was December of 2006 - and I had 3 credits left to graduate. As you know - that's a pretty unstressful last semester, and I wanted to do something different other than let my last months of college disappear into a muddy cascade of senior bar crawls and bitter- sweet long goodbyes. So I googled internships and came across a wide array of programs and companies - but one in particular caught my eye, Global Experiences study/work abroad. If you're the daughter of an attorney, you know that dad won't just go for anything - he needs a plan - one with direction and dedication. I knew that I wanted to go abroad, but I had to make it worth it. I grew up in Tokyo and we'd often go out of the country, take trips oversees - but all that pretty much stopped once we made the big move back to the States and I started high school...so I had a travel bug and it was time to get moving again. I picked my country, city and called up GE's office to get more information - I even went to visit their home office to meet the people I'd be dealing with. It wasn't easy convincing my Father, but GE had the best of both worlds - a study abroad program where I'd learn the language and interviews for internships based upon my major and academic interests. He went for it, I went for it."
