Wondering whether an international internship is right for you and your career goals? Take a look at how API Alum, Lydia Mollerup, made the most of her intern experience and even won an award for her work!
“Don’t eat the oranges on the trees – they are poisonous.” These are the first words that I distinctly remember coming out of my host mom’s mouth after I settled into my new home in Sevilla, Spain. It’s certainly helpful that I was warned–otherwise I might not be here to tell you that orange isn’t just a color. During my long walks to class, I had a lot of time to reflect and really live my life through my five senses, thanks to the famous oranges of Sevilla.
API would like to congratulate the winners of our first-ever photo and video contest! We received some incredible entries that highlighted the amazing experiences our students had while on our programs and we are so excited to share these images with the world!
Italy has gifted me with an endless list of extraordinary experiences, but my favorite memories from my time there are the small daily moments. Simply, the way life feels in Italy is magic to my soul.
Twenty years ago today (August 15, 2001), I walked into the API office to begin what I thought was a job. Little did I know that when I opened that door I was taking my first steps into a career that would span two decades, nor did I anticipate that this position would lead to lifelong friendships with individuals who have enriched my life exponentially and who have become like family to me.
As a lifelong learner myself, I’m always curious about what is around the next corner or behind a mysterious door. I believe that I am where I am today because of my commitment to this way of life and am honored to help others find their own unique paths.
Years ago, I studied abroad in both Madrid and Paris, and these experiences were so impactful that I knew with complete certainty that I wanted to pursue opportunities that would allow me to travel and to continue engaging in intercultural exchange.
