My internship on Shakespeare in the Park in New York allowed me to work with so many different production departments and boost my confidence considerably. After the internship, I returned to the UK and completed my BA degree in Stage Management and Technical Theatre. Since then I have been out on tour with Welsh National Opera as a Touring Stage Electrician and I am currently working in London as a Stage Technician at Opera Holland Park. Many doors have been opened thanks to my internship and I can’t wait to see what happens next!

"On returning to Ghana, I have been working with Ghana Water Company (the national utility company). I have designed, coordinated and supervised the successful relocation of water transmission pipelines within the central business district of Kumasi (the second largest city in Ghana). The lessons I learnt from the City of Racine Water System and Public Health Department gave me the exposure to properly plan relocation projects and coordinate pipe repairs to minimize the down time experienced by our customers."

After I finished my internship in the U.S., I started to work at the startup Ampido that does car parking sharing.

Most of the exams are in English and my six months in America is a big advantage and helps me a lot.

During my six-month stay in Andover, MA, I studied the FDA regulations on medical devices and successfully compiled and submitted an medical device application to the FDA. This application got approved without any question from the FDA one month after I returned to my home country.
In addition to the professional knowledge in the medical industry, I learned how to work in an American team and how to cooperate with American colleagues. The culture of freedom attracted me a lot and influenced my personality.

First of all, from a personal point of view my English level improved significantly and the confidence in myself did too. On the professional side, I’ve learned so many skills thanks to my manager that I don’t know where to start from! But the most important one is that I learned how to find a problem, its variables and how to find a solution and the strategy to get there, also with a team work.
