My name is Riley Mazey. I am a junior double majoring in Music and German. I am participating in the CofC Summer Internship in Germany. I chose this program because I was interested in immersing myself in the German culture while gaining work experience in my desired field. During my time abroad I hope to broaden my communication skills and develop an increased level of independence. Before leaving for my time abroad I researched Germany’s history and culture. I also asked family members and teachers who have been to Germany about their respective experiences.
