A new summer intern at our coworking space!

Hello, my name is Emmanouela and I am 22 years old! I have just started my internship at Stone Soup coworking space and I come from the island of Rhodes, Greece. I have been living in Athens for four years now doing my studies, but I hope to stay here much longer. Studying Marketing and Communication at the Athens University of Economics and Business. At the same time, I have also enrolled in an another school where I study Interior Architecture and Design. My professional future will definitely be in the creative sector!

This summer I decided to do my internship and I couldn’t have made a better choice than Stone Soup. Stone Soup is a social enterprise promoting a great and innovative philosophy about a new way of working. Before Stone Soup, I was not familiar with the concept of cooperative workspaces and I was very interested to learn more about it. After some research and observation, I came to the conclusion that coworking spaces are the best choice for those who work alone remotely because they have a lot to offer both on a social and professional level. 

My expectations at Stone Soup coworking space

The main ingredient I am bringing at Stone Soup is my digital marketing skills. More specifically, I will be cooking the website’s digital analytics and I will be creating content for social media. Digital media should mirror the cozy ambiance of the coworking space and the diverse background of its members. By communicating our everyday life through social media, more people will have the opportunity to get to know the community and the values of Stone Soup.

I am sure that during my internship, I will gain many other skills that will help me in my professional career. Improving my communication skills and my digital literacy are just some of them. I’ll also have the opportunity to get in touch with new people from different places and various cultures. I am looking forward to it! 

Starting a new summer internship with Stone Soup in Athens!

My name is Alex Huang, and I am a 21-year-old student from Toronto, Canada. I wanted to gain marketing experience and improve my leadership skills, so naturally I turned to my local AIESEC office where I was connected with a Digital Marketing internship at Stone Soup.

My Role

As the Digital Marketing Intern, I will be working on increasing the company’s online presence and managing its social media channels. Stone Soup’s vibrant, friendly, and community focused culture appealed to me from the start, and I look forward to working with the professionals at Stone Soup and around the local community!

Traveling Abroad

This is my first time in Greece, so I am excited to travel around the country and explore its various destinations. Coming from Canada, I am greatly appreciating the weather so far, and as someone who has been interested in photography for most of his life – I am very excited to begin capturing the beauty of this country with my camera.

Being able to travel and gain professional experience during university has always been a personal dream of mine, and I look forward to making the most of my summer here in Athens!

Join AIESEC

AIESEC is a non-profit organization which promotes youth leadership by facilitating internationals exchange opportunities to young people across the world.

Winter Internship in Greece, how does it feel?

Hello, my name is Pedro Oliveira, I am 19 years old and I’m from Brazil. I love technology and innovation so I’m studying Electrical Engineering for my bachelor degree and also I’m an IT Technician. Following my passion, I started working in Digital Marketing at my Junior Enterprise, (a non-profit type of company that allows young students to work and run a business), and more recently, I got the opportunity to do a Marketing Internship at Stone Soup via AIESEC, with a focus on obtaining a leadership experience in another part of the globe.

As a kid, I was passionate with greek mythology and history, that’s why I arrived in Athens last week and I’m loving the city. Despite the recent economic crisis and turbulence, I believe this city and this country may still provide a great innovation market.

Since I finished high school, I have set my mind in starting my own business. Aiming for that professional goal, I’ve pursued the opportunity of doing this AIESEC internship program in a coworking space, because it is a business space that offers you everything that you need to start implementing your ideas and also it offers you great networking opportunities.
