1/c Abigail Ferrara - Hong KongSpend your summer internship immersed in the culture of a foreign country. Government major Cadet Abigail Ferrara traveled to Hong Kong for the Asia Institute for Political Economy seminar.

“I selected this internship to learn about the cultures of the students at the seminar who represent 17 nations,” said Ferrara. “And also to experience Hong Kong, particularly right now while there is political unrest.”

Ferrara learned the foundations of philosophy and the robust political economy. Out of the seminar, she took in a new culture, shaping her outlook as a future Coast Guard officer.

“As the Coast Guard increasingly turns her eye to aid the Naval efforts in the South China Sea, I now have many good friends who can help me and provide knowledge and support if I ever travel there in the future,” said Ferrara.

See where the summer could send you.
