We would like to welcome out new intern Sabrina who joined us on Monday and will be with us for 10 weeks. Sabrina has written a little bit about herself for this week blog.
My name is Sabrina Kuehr, I am 29 years old and I live in Muenster, Germany. I was born in a little village called Buende. When I got my qualification to get into university in 2004, I went to Muenster for my studies. In 2012 I got my Master’s Degree in Linguistics, Spanish Philology and Economic policy.
One of my greatest experiences during university, was my year in Spain. In 2007 I went to Spain to study at Universidad De La Rioja (North of Spain). I loved living there with the people and getting to know the culture and the language. The year changed me totally.
While at university I discovered that I really enjoyed creative writing and I began to write for a students newspaper. After university I worked and traveled around Spain and England. In Spain I was teaching German for beginners, it was a nice experience. In England I worked in a hotel in room service. In 2013 I went back to Germany and got a job for a big supermarket company like Lidl as a Sales Manager. I was responsible for six stores, controlling costs and personal management. But I realised that was not what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. I made a decision and I searched for other opportunity. I realised that PR work would be a fantastic chance to combine my hobby with a job. However the problem was that I had never done a professional internship in a PR Agency. Thankfully the Edinburgh Chamber have now given me a chance to see what events and communications is like.
And now I am sitting here on my desk in the Chamber of Commerce in Edinburgh. And it’s so amazing to got this opportunity. It’s my first week working here and I am really enjoying it! I hope I can support the team and I will learn so much here!
After the work placement I hope to working in PR or Event industry.
