Doing the mk2mk internship was one of the best choices I had made in college. After the internship, as an associate I have been able to help lead conferences all over the world from Beijing to Paris to Johannesburg, South Africa. It has not only been an incredible adventure but I have created a tight knit family of friends within the MK2MK associates which I have had the opportunity to travel with together. Not only have these experiences been great, but when I interview for jobs, they are always surprised about the public speaking experiences, leading groups in cross cultural contexts and mentoring students with MK2MK. The interviewer is interested and impressed about my MK2MK resume, this helps me to gateway into why being a third culture person is important to me.
