“As a 法国 major and a 西班牙语 minor, I’ve applied what I’m learning to real-life circumstances -- and that is important to me. I interned at a local refugee resettlement agency and made great connections. I've built both interpersonal skills and language skills. I also learn a lot about 国际关系 and business, providing me with unique experiences and knowledge that I've applied to my studies here at 资本 and will definitely use in my future.”
