Global Experiences: Internships in New York City, USA

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
I have gone through Global Experiences twice now. Once in London and once in New York. Both experiences where completely different from one another. I learned so much from each one and gained long lasting connections! I learned from my internship as well as from the people in the programs and the culture of each city! Global Experience did a wonderful job of getting the interns together and showing them the city they where in and how to create a lasting impression everywhere you go. I would do the program again and again if I could!
