(義大利 Veragon 實習生 董同學)
一直以來我都深信著，選擇踏上每一段旅程都需要一個極大的勇氣。20 歲那年我鼓起勇氣一個人前往紐約深造學習設計管理。21 那年我選擇一個人去澳洲雪梨探險。而這次憑著一股衝動跟熱情，我選擇了離鄉背井五個月來到這遙遠又有點陌生的土地 - 義大利。
As I grew older, my passion for life is getting warmer and warmer. When I was a little, I have no idea what was traveling all about until I was 20. To be the youngest in my family, I always have completely protected by my family, and when I got the chance to fly, no matter how was the view along the trip, no matter things went well or not, I feel so comfortable, coziness, and enjoy all the details of the journey. I enjoyed every trip in my life, and tried really hard to feel and experience the culture and humanities. I’ve met a lot of people from different countries, and absorbed the life experience and knowledge from them. Each experience has made me have a different experience of life, and make me have more audacity to chase and fulfill my dream.
It is a rare opportunity to get an internship abroad, so as soon as I saw this information I couldn’t help but applying this program right away. And I’m really glad that I’ve done this until now. Even though along this five months trip has happened a lot of things are unpredictable, but the good things is they all end up going well. Sometimes happy and sweet, sometimes fluster and sad, all the cold and warm that you have to face all by yourself. Without family and friends around all the time, it was a bit hard and tough, and seems like the time went slower as well. However, it remindedme how lucky I am to have their support and love all the time, and also thank them to let me choose the one I want to be, and the things I want to do. They make me a better person.
From Italy, Czech Republic, Austria, Paris to London, every land that I’ve been are incredible things happened in my life, I used to think that it was just a dream to have a chance to go to Europe, still hard for me to believe that I made this dream come true when I was 21. Time went faster than I imagine, even though I really wanted to stay at every places longer, to had more time to explore to experience, to breathe. But at the same time, I suddenly found out there are still a lot of places that I haven’t been back in Taiwan, and this is terrible. I tried to recall all the places in Taiwan that I’ve already been, perhaps the landscape in Europe and other countries are so breathtaking, but I should have seen all the scenery from my mother county. So the first thing that I’m going to do in Taiwan, is to plan a trip in Taiwan, savoring the subtle of my mother land, cherish what I already have.
Cherish every moment to learn is a really important thing when it comes to internship, especially internship abroad. Might be the last chance in my entire life to work for a company like this. We probably would have a lot of problems on work, but my always said to me “ It is not a big deal to do the things wrong, the matter is what you have learned through every tasks, and to do your job better”. When through the job experience for five months, I feel that it is so nice to be a student without and stress and busy and hustle life. I appreciate that I still have one more year to learn before jumping into work in Taiwan During the work in Italy, I found my shortage and what I need to improve myself.
Strive for life is not easy, but it’s worth it, and that’s the reason we are here. Make me cherish every second, and profoundly feel the meaning of life. Life is short and I got lost before as well, forgetting what’s the point of living, and had wasted the time at the past. Hence, I treasure every impulse that I got, because of all the impulse, I have courage to do and make life meaningful. Enjoy swaying when we are young, and I’m going to make my future more colorful, and make all the dreams come true.
