Mathilde is completing a Marketing & Sales internship in Australia. She is enjoying discovering the differences between Australia and her home country of France. From Australia, she may take the short flight to explore Bali :
My home city: Rennes is famous for: their food specialties like crepes, galettes, cider…
When I was young I wanted to be: a designer because drawing is one of my hobby but I chose a different way for my studies
I chose Australia because: I wanted to discover Australia for many years. I had contemplated other countries but I thought that Australia was the best country to realise lots of changes. And I had the desire to go find out what’s out there.
My impression of Australia before I arrived: was that Sydney was a very very big city and I thought that I would see kangaroos and koalas everywhere! But it’s not the case haha.
One thing I have learnt about Australia that I didn’t know before: is people in Australia are very open-minded and I like that! Moreover there is a cultural difference between France and Australia. I didn’t know that it was forbidden to smoke in certain places. I also didn’t know that Australian people eat very early…
Before I leave Australia, I want to: travel on the East Cost after my internship!
If I could live anywhere in the world, I’d choose: …I don’t know at this moment. I’ve visited many countries but all of them are very different and I appreciate them all in a different way
Best advice I have been given is: to enjoy my experience and realise the luck I have!
My worst job was: ….I never had a ‘worst’ job. I’ve done many jobs but I’ve found how to appreciate them even if sometimes they were difficult
My next trip will be to: maybe Bali after my internship! I will see.
Australia described in one word: AMAZING
