ALYSHA-RAE: I was looking for an internship. And eventually I found one in Hamburg, Germany, and I was working as a market researcher. You learn so many skills just, you know, intercultural sensitivity. You learn from working with people of a different background than you. There’s so many things that will just add to your personality, and I think it’s such a valuable thing.

DUNCAN: And having that experience sort of act as a bit of a launch pad, so to speak, for more opportunities in the future.
