It is excellent here. At the same time, I am practicing my Mandarin. Work and studies have been great! I also received an opportunity to “take charge” of an event.

The most significant thing which I learned during the internship was the importance of relational connections and networking. Talent can only bring one so far, having the right people to bring the right opportunities at the right time makes a world of difference.

This internship opportunity has been extremely fruitful and valuable. It has made me step out of my comfort zone and experience a different culture. I am really thankful to my colleagues and superiors for their warm hospitality. Although there were difficulties such as language barrier, they constantly guided and motivated me to strive harder. I feel that you should not underestimate yourself but always try to challenge your own potential. Indonesia is actually a huge and beautiful country so use the weekends wisely and explore different parts of it!

Interning in Grab Indonesia has been such an eventful experience. It has allowed me to gain so much knowledge with regards to analytics and operations, and given me the opportunity to work in over 10 cities in Indonesia. I was even allowed to lead projects, manage different cities, as well as propose and implement new strategies to smoothen operations.

My supervisor, who is also a Managing Director, gave me the opportunity to create my own cosmetic skincare brand. With his guidance, I took charge of the entire product development process. Through this, I could see the entrepreneurial spirit of the Thais.
