We are hereby introducing a new column to the newsletter magazine; The Interns Update! In this column, we, the three interns, will write about our work in the chamber and everything related to it. Our internships give us a unique opportunity to interact with new people from diverse backgrounds, and work with businesses from all sectors and nations. As we are all students, we want to represent new thoughts and ideas. We want to share some of our experiences from the chamber with you.
In this first version of the column, we will start by introducing ourselves:
