This Summer I have been fortunate enough to have interned in Marketing at the British Chamber of Commerce Southwest China. The Chamber organised many events and activities for its members and I helped ensure these were known about. I was also able to participate in many of these events as will be demonstrated in some of the following photographs. Furthermore, I was able to travel around China during my weekends. This was a brilliant immersion into Chinese culture and helped my language skills as well (since I studied Mandarin in first year). The Go Abroad fund covered the cost of my initial flights to China and I am very grateful to have received this remuneration as the internship only covered the cost of my accommodation.
This was the view from the British Chamber office over Chengdu
This is from when we did a team-building exercise at the beginning of my internship to get the office team closer. We climbed Mount Qingcheng together – a gruelling but very fulfilling task.
This is from the top of Mount Qingcheng – was not much of a view due to the fog but very peaceful and serene. Mount Qingcheng is the birthplace of Daoism.
