Let me tell you about ...
Setting the stage. 4 years ago, I came to NYC alone to attend college. I set a goal for myself to finish a Bachelor Degree and to get a job. I told myself that I am not going back to Burma without achieving my goals.
The beginning. My life in NYC begins with attending QCC and working part time. Then I transferred to Baruch College to pursue Marketing Management. Attending classes is not enough to get a job. From my research, internship experience is a plus to obtain a job after college.
The middle. Being an international student is not easy. My choices are limited and therefore, I push myself to try harder. There were ups and downs along the way. I was not confident to network or get an internship.
The End. I met a great professor who not only taught his class well but also helped me with resume and internship application. I finally got accepted into a Marketing internship. I also go father and got another PR internship. I had also took leadership role as a Chair of Marketing Committee in Transfer Student Organization at Baruch College.
Reflection. I have become a 2.0 version of myself. I was introvert and shy. I did not have confident to put myself out there as an international student. However, everything has changed. I am totally confident with my international background and unique personality. I believe that I am going to get a job in US and I am going to be a part of COOP community to help undergraduates gain confident as I become.
