My name is Ramona Sommerstorfer. I am 26 years old and from Bavaria, Germany. Since my bachelor’s program at the Ostbayerische Technische Hochschule Regensburg requires an internship, my wish was to do it abroad, which is why I am here now. I have never been to the US before and I am looking forward to seeing what life and work is like.
Rebecca, one of AutoCom’s other interns, picked me up from the airport last Wednesday so I could meet my new housemates immediately. I am staying in Royal Oak, but in a different house than the other AutoCom interns.
They are currently taking me to work as I am still in the middle of organizing a lot of formalities like car insurance or bank account.
During my 6-month stay, I am excited to explore Detroit and other parts of the US. I would like to visit as much as I can, cities like New York, Nashville, Toronto and the west coast including California, of course.
At the same time, I want to gain a lot of professional and personal development at AutoCom. Since I have already worked for a large company in Germany for a few years, the internship in a small American business will probably be much different.
I am really looking forward to the next six months here in the US and at AutoCom.
I am sure I will gain a lot of experience and I am excited about exploring the country and making new friends.
