小時候第一個夢想是當空姐,嚮往自己說著流利的英文到世界各地走走看看,雖然當空姐已經不是我的夢想了,但是喜歡冒險和挑戰新事物的個性還是沒有改

變,一直對國外充滿著憧憬和嚮往,很想體驗在國外生活,看到以前認識的同學,有的在國外讀書,有的在國外工作,就很羨慕他們,但是我不想只是隔著一個螢幕空羨慕,我要將渴望和羨慕化為行動,因此我時常關注我學校的國際處,看會不會有什麼機會或是活動是可以讓我到國外生活一陣子的,偶然間,我看到這個東海大學舉辦的義大利實習計畫,我就好不猶豫的報名了,雖然媽媽和朋友不是很想我參加,但是我想實踐我的夢想,因此我將他們的不捨化為我更要奮鬥的動力,接受重重面試的關卡,我順利地來到了義大利。

 

  我不喜歡一成不變、墨守成規的環境,我喜歡冒險和認識新事物,我想讓自己更有競爭力,因次我都會告訴自己要勇於去闖、勇於去挑戰,擴大自己的舒適圈,因此我很喜歡迪士尼故事的一段台詞:「冒險就在外頭等著你!飛向宇宙,浩瀚無敵。」雖然我很嚮往在國外生活,自認為自己不怕挫折,很能適應環境、不會想家,但是出國後,我發現我會想家、我沒有那麼容易適應環境,例如:因為水質的問題,造成我的皮膚敏感;因為飲食的差異,造成我食物過敏;因為語言的隔閡,造成溝通不良等等的問題,我也會有想逃避和墮落的心態,但是這樣的心態沒有維持很久,因為我告訴自己「痛苦只是暫時的,放棄卻是永恆的。」這是一個新的挑戰,只要我挑戰成功,熬過那些煎熬的片段,那這就是一個新的突破,然而我熬過去了,我愛上義大利語,學會一個從來沒接觸過的語言,是如此的有成就感;融入義大利的生活步調,了解他們的生活習性等等的。而我想唯有親身經驗後,才能知道結果是什麼,在這一個義大利實習經驗中,添加了很多體悟和想法上的轉變,然而我也比他人多了一個再多的金錢都無法買到的回憶與經歷,而這樣的經驗我也能侃侃而談的和別人分享。

  第一次參加這種實習計畫,除了要融入和適應當地環境,我也要適應和融入其他九位夥伴的個性和生活方式,而這九位夥伴都是從陌生人來慢慢認識和熟悉的,因此這大約半年的相處,除了讓我學到如何團體生活外、和增進待人處事上的技巧,例如學習他人的優點,包容他人的缺點、站在他人的角度思考等等的。

  此外在工作上,我體驗到和外國人一起共事,了解他們的工作習性、思考方式與處世態度,我很榮幸我有幫助到我被分配到的公司,因為公司負責的產品,剛好和我學習的領域有相關,我了解紅酒的相關資訊和對企劃方面有所鑽研,所以我促使公司和有希望合作的產業有所聯繫與交集。而學習方面,我體驗到國外名副其實的互動教學,老師會做很多活動和問很多問題,來讓我思考和分組討論。

  在這個實習經驗中,有很多我的第一次,第一次自己搭飛機;第一次上救護車;第一次自己旅遊,這些第一次都是給予自己的突破與改變。除了工作和學習外,當然也有遊玩,以前就很希望來一趟自己的旅行,自己規劃行程,自己打理一切,而我實踐了,自己去了很多佩魯賈之外的城市,從自己找行程、規劃交通方式、找住宿等等的,當我順利的完成一趟旅行的時候,都會覺得特別有成就感。

  在義大利看到很多中國人,有的是來讀書,有的是居住在這裡做生意,因為同樣是說中文的,所以特別熟悉,然而他們還會說流利的義大利語,就感覺他們的經驗比我豐富,比我更有競爭力,才發覺自己還有好多事物要學習和努力。跨出舒適圈、開過眼界後,讓我更能體會「人外有人,天外有天」這句話,我發現自己真的還好渺小,要為自己的夢想,再更奮鬥和努力的去實現,因為比我努力的人,實在是太多了!因此我很清楚的知道我沒有怠惰和鬆懈的藉口。藉由這個實習計畫給予我的經驗,讓我更確定我的目標和方向了!我想我回台灣後,有得忙碌了!忙碌的朝著我的夢想,努力實踐著!

 

 

  When I was a child, my first dream was to be a flight attendant. I wanted to speak fluent English and traveling around the world. Although the flight attendant is not my dream now, the personality that likes to take risks and challenge new things wasn’t changed. I was very looking forward to experience living abroad. Seeing the peers who I have known before was studying abroad or working abroad. I envied them. But I didn’t want to be envious in front of the screen. I wanted to achieve my dream. Therefore, I always paid attention to the international office of my school. I would see if there was if there is any chance or activity that would allow me to live abroad for a while. In the meantime, I saw this internship program. I didn't hesitate to sign up. Although my mother and friends didn't really want me to participate, I wanted to practice my dreams. For the motivation of their balks, I accepted the level of interviews. Then, I came to Italy.

 

  I don't like the unchanging, unconventional environment. I like to take risks and meet new things. I want to make myself more competitive. I will tell myself that I have to be brave enough to challenge and to expand my comfort zone. Therefore, I like the sentence of the Disney story: "Adventure is out there! Though infinity and beyond." Although I was longing to live abroad, I thought that I was not afraid of setbacks. I could adapt to the environment and wasn’t homesick. But when I went abroad, I found that I was homesick and wasn’t easy to adapt to the environment. For example, because of the water quality problem, my skin was sensitive; because of the difference in diet, I was allergic to food; because of the language different, it was poor communication. I also had a mentality of escaping and falling down, but this mentality has not been maintained for a long time. I told myself that "Pain is temporary and quitting lasts forever.’’ This was a new challenge. As long as I challenged and overcame the setbacks, and this was a new breakthrough. However, I overcame it. I felt in love with Italian and learned a language that I have never touched before. It was so fulfilling. I incorporated the pace of life in Italy and understood their habits of life and so on. And I thought that I knew the result after I had a personal experience. In this Italian internship experience, I have added a lot of insights and ideas. I had a lot of memories and experiences. However, I could share this experience with others.

 

  It was my first time that I participated in this internship program. In addition to integrating and adapting to the local environment, I also needed to adapt and integrate into the personality and lifestyle of the other nine partners. Therefore, in this half year, in addition to letting me learn how to live in groups and to improve the skills of dealing with others, such as learning the merits of others, tolerating the shortcomings of others and thinking from the perspective of others and so on.

By the way, I experienced working with foreigners and understanding their work habits, ways of thinking and attitudes at work. I was honored that I have helped the company I was assigned to. I understood the information about wine and the research on the planning, so I urged the company to have connections and intersections with wine industries. As for learning, I have experienced a veritable interactive teaching abroad. The teacher did a lot of activities and asked many questions to make us think and discuss in group.

 

  In this internship experience, there were many of my first time. For example, the first time I took the plane myself; the first time I went to the ambulance; the first time I traveled. Those gave me a breakthrough and change. In addition to work and study, I traveled. I used to want to take a trip to my own travels, plan my own trip, taking care of everything. I went to a lot of cities out of Perugia. When I successfully completed a trip, I felt particularly fulfilled.

 I saw many Chinese in Italy, some came to study, some lived here to do business. I think that we are familiar. They also could speak fluent Italian so I felt that their experience was richer than me. Therefore, I still had a lot of things to learn and work hard. After I stepped out of the comfort circle and opened my eyes, I was more able to understand the phrase "No matter how good you think you are, there is always someone out there that is better." I found that I was really little and I had to work harder and harder for my dreams. Because there are too many people who work harder than me! So I know very well that I have no excuse for laziness and laxity. With the experience given to me by this internship program, let me determine my goals and direction! I think that I will be busy after I return to Taiwan. Be busy towards my dreams!
