I had been Zhuhai Ready for 15 days., and 11 hours 20 minutes later, l can finally say hello! I’m Michelle, Zhuhai’s (珠海) new Business Development, Marketing & Sales Intern, and I am currently a student at Nottingham Trent University. Prior to arrival, l had my doubts on whether I would make it, but despite a few hiccups, InternChina ensured my arrival went untroubled- even arriving out of hours InternChina was still unexpectedly there for me!
Having been raised in a multi-cultural society, I’ve always been keen on seeing the world. I’m interested in how different cultures work together as one team, motivated and influenced by the business sector; with the opportunity of a placement year during university, l genuinely couldn’t have picked a better destination than Zhuhai!
The attitude locals have towards foreigners is determined by the smallest interactions and observations here. China definitely seemed
to be a challenge, and prior to arriving, I became skeptical- which as a pretty normal feeling. Nonetheless, it has been the most rewarding experience yet, and I am 100% looking forward to the rest of my time here and to have IC by my side as I embark on this journey.
Zhuhai so Far
16 days since arriving, I’ve tried some weird and great food, meet some of the most amazing people and I have 100% mastered the transportation systems! It takes getting lost to learn, and I was no doubt lost when l figured this out.
Aim high you’ll be amazed by the view, and 珠海 has some breathtaking views. Opportunities like this don’t come by often; I may get frustrated, shocked and amazed but it is absolutely worth it.
