Vicky Wang (United States, 2011), The College of New Jersey (TCNJ), Fashion internship in ShanghaiCache Cache
I loved the people in my department and felt I gained good experience in the field. Arriving in Shanghai two months ago, I was not sure what to expect. Now a week from my departure, I can truly say that this experience has been life changing. I learned that to gain the most out of this experience you have to challenge yourself to try new things and go after the things you want to see/learn. Luckily, I had the support of the Next Step staff in exploring this wonderful city and a diverse group of interns to share this journey with. NSC4LIFE.
