Upon completing her stint here with us, we asked one of our especially wonderful interns, Rebecca, to consider writing a blog post for the natie site about the subject of her choice. One of our suggested topics was, “What’s it like to be an intern? And what would you want out of one anyway?”
Before sending the blog post, she sent us a personal note which deeply, deeply moved us.
Folks, sometimes we ask for a client recommendation. And we’re always thrilled when we get on. But this note? It came as a complete surprise, it wasn’t requested, and it’s one of the most precious gifts we’ve ever received. We’ve asked Rebecca if we could share it just because, well, it moved us so. And she said yes.
Thanks, Rebecca. Safe travels across Asia. We miss you already.

(Rebecca, originally from Minneapolis, Minnesota, graduated from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign in May 2016 before coming to Tel Aviv to intern for natie for 5 months. Next, she’ll be traveling in Southeast Asia for a while.)
