A Day in the Life of an Intern Abroad

Bryanna, a USC Junior interned in Milan, Italy, with a local fashion designer and said her internship was an eye-opener, full of new challenges and opportunities. She joined in the midst of production for their launch for Spring-Summer '18 and got to see the ins and outs of what it really takes to run a company by yourself.

Check out her Snapchat takeover video featuring a day in the life of a fashion business intern where she shows us around her internship, cool spots around town, some yummy gelato, and a few great tips on makeup, hair, and cooking!

Here is Bryanna's full story.

What Fellow USC Students Had to Say

My internship abroad taught me so much more about myself than I ever imagined. I found how independent and bold I really am. I had the best summer of my life so far in Paris, France. And part of what made it so awesome was the challenges I face while here. I would encourage everyone to try something like this for yourself. It doesn't have to be an internship or study abroad in another country. But find something that's going to push you to recognize parts of yourself you never knew. It's totally worth it.

Interning in Dublin allowed me to gain not only valuable work experience, but enjoy of a colorful and caring culture of Ireland itself. From the energetic and friendly tour guides to the supportive and inspiring staff. Dublin welcomed me as one of its own as I explored, stayed, and lived. Apart from the fantastic internship placement, working on the famous Grafton Street allowed me to discover Dublin in a whole new light. Discover Dublin and Ireland at your own risk. A place this great is hardest to leave.
