What Our Interns Say About GEIP

Recia Lee Ernny

International Business
Intern at TalentAdore

Dance is the way of life

"Living and working in Finland exposed me to a totally different culture, communication and mindset. Being adaptable and stepping out of my comfort zone were essential. Takeaway: The opportunity to hone my leadership abilities in taking charge of projects. I am now more responsible, mature and independent."

"I learnt latin dance! Everyone in Finland knows how to do a form of latin dance so they have classes at the gym I go to."
