Tell us a bit about your background

I'm 21 years old and I'm a senior at the University of North Georgia. I'm graduating in August with a bachelor’s degree in international affairs with a concentration in Europe. I was born and raised in Gwinnett County, Georgia and for the past three years I have attended school in Dahlonega. I love living up in the mountains of North Georgia but I'm excited to start my future career wherever that may take me. 

Why did you apply for this internship?

I'm hoping to pursue a career in the international field, and I was thinking that SACC Georgia would give me a great opportunity to expand my experience in quality of skill in a business setting. SACC Georgia gives me great exposure to international trade in the exchange of business between two countries. This internship is also a wonderful opportunity for me to diversify my skill set by learning marketing and membership managements skills

What are your expectations for this internship?

I'm expecting that this internship will give me a lot of valuable life and work experience.

What do you think SACC Georgia can offer your future career?

I think the biggest thing that's at Georgia can offer me in my future career is the experience. I'm expecting to learn a lot that I'll be able to apply to my future career.

What is your impression of Sweden?

My impression of Sweden is that Sweden seems to be a country of kind and outdoorsy people. The country is beautiful and has breathtaking landscapes. The Swedes are people that would go out of their way to make you feel welcome.


The primary objective of SACC-Georgia is to promote an exchange of business, trade, investment, technology and culture between Sweden and the state of Georgia. SACC-Georgia is one of 19 regional chambers across the United States, cooperating under the umbrella of SACC-USA based in Washington, D.C.
