    The internship I had with AI was great working and living experience.
    Coming to Brisbane and Australia for the first time, I was new to everything. AI team, especially my internship program supervisor was very nice, caring and helpful. I definitely loved the weather, the beaches, the city and people.
    At the workplace, everyone was welcoming, encouraging and inspiring. I was able to apply all my knowledge and skills from school and learn more practical skills through various tasks. The best thing at work was that there is always someone helping and supporting you when you need anything. I would highly recommend the program to anyone looking for more working experience.
