My Connect-123 experience brought me to two cities: Barcelona, Spain and Dublin, Ireland. My Barcelona experience was one of the most memorable of my life. There is so much beauty and fun hidden in every corner of the city. My internship was in engineering and was very relevant to both my academic and professional goals. I gained countless bits of valuable information with my time there. Lea was always there to help when needed. There are always so many connect events to do that you will never have downtime.
My experience in Dublin was just as wonderful. Ireland is a beautiful country with a rich culture and fascinating people. I was only there for a short time, but in that time I was able to travel all around the island, seeing the various castles and enjoying the countryside. It was a very fitting internship and everybody there was very kind and accommodating. There are also plenty of Connect-123 events to experience the many different aspects of Dublin, including the nightlife.
