There’s something about exposing yourself to a new environment whilst being in your zone and doing what you love. When you take internships abroad, you are challenged to step up your game, hone your craft, and discover your forte. All while having loads of fun along the way.
If you’re ready for your life to take a 180-degree turn, here are a handful experiences abroad you’ll surely want to say YES to!
Your English Proficiency
As the world gets smaller and global exchanges more demanding, the use of a universal language becomes more evident. Being born and raised in a bilingual country like the Philippines, your English is already better than most southeast Asian students. English proficiency is so necessary that a lot of students look for ways to learn it. Especially students in the rural areas of southeast Asian countries.
Take advantage of your English communication skills and take on internships abroad as a TEFL teacher! This is a 7-week internship offering a hands-on experience. You’ll be interacting with the communities and students of local villages in Kanchanaburi, Thailand. And just before you hop on your plane back home, you get to visit the exotoc island of Koh Samet!

Exposing yourself to an environment like South Africa’s will allow you to have a closer experience to the struggles happening all over the world — especially to developing countries.

Research issues like gender inequality, human trafficking, and child labor. Have mentors show you the best way you can use that information to actually be of service to the world.
