I feel I can always improve and this opportunity gave me so many chances to put myself out there and to develop and work with people that I've never worked with, from different cultures, languages and mindsets. It was such an intense program and really beneficial.

Rebecca | Storyspot | Online business Challenge | Sweden
I was able to take my learnings from RMIT as well as other experiences and use them to create a campaign for a country I've never been to. It was a great experience that allowed me to take my skills to an international level. My biggest takeaway was learning to be concise and clear with my communication.

You gain the exposure to like-minded people. These people might be from a different culture but had similar education. You can bounce ideas off them professionally and personally, and their collaboration can lead anywhere. Actually, one of my pieces was recognized with a student award.
