Lorina Hermann (Internee, Nov 2011 - Jan 2012)


Department of Social Science 
University of Technology Kaiserslautern, Germany

As as Social Science student I decided to do an internship, in which on the one hand I can make use of my knowledge I got during my studies and on the other hand gain some personal experiences. For both purposes the internship was successful for me. During the 8 weeks I stayed here, I could see how the organization works and think of ways to improve it further. Also the working conditions were good and the office always welcomed and helped me, if I needed something. As for my personal experience, I can say it was not easy to be around the patients in the beginning, but as time went on I got much more confident to interact with them, which I consider as a big step for an understanding, loving and respectful way of living together.  I know that I will have a different look at the special people in this world from now on. The most beautiful thing was to see them smiling, because of something I did. It is a very fulfilling and nice feeling. I am thankful to got this experience in my life.
