Matthias in Canada


Name: Mattias

Last Name: Carette

Programme: Global Internship Programme

University: University of Gent

Country of Internship: Canada

I’m extremely excited for my upcoming experience in Canada! I have always aspired an international career and my eager to gain some cultural experience outside of Europe led me to this country. The hardest part is deciding to go. Now that I have made the decision to step outside of my comfort zone, I can’t wait to be in Canada and gain the personal development which naturally comes with this experience.
