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!

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.

Getting started with my internship at Stone Soup, by Valesca Ribeiro

Hello, my name is Valesca, I am 24 years old and I live in Brazil. I have a bachelor degree in Organizational Communication and now I am studying Marketing Management. I got my internship at Stone Soup via AIESEC, a global platform that aims to cultivate leadership amongst young students.

I arrived in Athens this week and I will stay for a couple of months. I love to explore new cultures and meet people; that is why immediately after my graduation I traveled to Australia. I stayed there for a year and a half studying and working. When I got back to Brazil, I decided to continue with my studies and traveling plans. When I saw the opportunity to come to Greece I applied without hesitating. Now I am here ready to learn and collaborate with the Stone Soup team.

Being in a different country may be challenging, but it is also a great opportunity to push my boundaries and mature professionally. Stone Soup is a coworking space and consultancy firm and their vacancy caught immediately my attention. When I first heard about the coworking concept, I found the idea intriguing, because I thought it could shake down traditional market models. I believe that my internship here is going to be a great opportunity to expand my knowledge and get connected with people in different areas and learn about marketing and beyond.
