I spent 3 months interning in Medellín, Colombia, with the Intern Group. It has been one of the best experiences of my life - so much so that even though I haven't left Medellín yet, I'm already planning on coming back!
The Intern Group was very professional and supportive throughout my entire internship. They placed me in a law firm that was absolutely PERFECT for me! I was able to work in a field that I enjoy doing, with workmates who have become like a second family to me. I learned so much about the international legal field, as well as how to adapt to different work cultures.
My accomodation was amazing. I specifically asked to be placed in an apartment with other Colombians in order to improve my Spanish, and the Intern Group found me an apartment with the best roommates I could possibly ask for. The view was beautiful, and the location so convenient - we lived right above 2 supermarkets, and the metro station was a short walk away. The apartment complex also had a pool, jacuzzis, and a gym! It was a luxurious place to live in.
The Intern Group planned social events and professional development workshops for us, and were always there for us when we needed any slight thing. These events were always enjoyable, and allowed us to really get into Colombian culture. As a group of interns, we were a close, tight-knit family. It is a wonderful feeling to leave Medellín knowing that I now have life-long friends from all over the world.
Overall, the Intern Group organised the most incredible internship, and because of them, I was able to really enjoy my time in Colombia. I learned so much academically and professionally, and have gained so many close friends. I wholeheartedly recommend this program!
