Hi everyone!

Thought I would give you an update on how my trip has been going. I have been having so much fun over here!

My internship has been going great!

Right from my first day, I have been involved in their team meetings and marketing strategy talks. I am lucky enough to have been given some really exciting projects to work on. I have developed new brochures from an Australian perspective that EUSA can use to promote their programmes to university students in Australia and have taken the lead on a presentation to promote a new programme they are developing. They’ve made me feel like I am one of the team and have given me responsibilities just like any other employee.

Boston itself is such a beautiful city. It is one of the oldest cities in the United States and is stunning with its classic buildings and gas street lamps. It’s the middle of winter at the moment and although it is freezing, with the snow it is absolutely gorgeous. I am lucky enough to have the Boston Public Garden situated right across the road from where I am interning; the cold has frozen the lake and covered the grass and trees in lots of snow.

This is the first time I have seen snow so, my first weekend here, I visited the Public Garden to make my first snowman and snow angel . I have to say I’m very surprised at how hard they are to make!

I had a great day sightseeing yesterday, where I rode the easy-to-use “T” subway to the East End and spent the day at the New England Aquarium and got some great purchases at Faneuil Hall Marketplace.

Today is Superbowl Sunday so looking forward to watching the game. I’ll get an insight as to how Americans celebrate this day when compared with how us Aussies celebrate AFL Grand Final day.

Looking forward to my trip to New York later this week, so will keep you posted!
