TL;DR: I am looking for an internship internationally, and, if somehow possible, a place to stay (though I can somehow figure this out on my own, too!). I know it is a lot to ask from any random internet stranger, but please share this with anyone you know that could potentially help me!
I'm taking a total shot in the dark. It's kind of crazy, but I hope my prayers will be answered. 🙌
Now, this new school year, my school is sending me out for two weeks to participate in an internship somewhere, and I still have no clue where I will do this. It's not super soon (can be anywhere this school year) but I have to have it figured out pretty soon.
So, I have to find an internship somewhere in another country (preferably in Europe, but please reach out from anywhere!), where I know next to no-one, travel there on my own, and find residence for two weeks, at 15 years old.
I would really like to find an internship in tech somewhere. It's sort of like a dream to me.
I'd say I'm a pretty smart kid. I do TTO, which translates to 'Billingual Education VWO' in English. VWO is the highest normal education you can do in the Netherlands before you go to uni, and TTO is another level above that. About 2% of schools offer TTO in my country, and about 1/4 of applicants get in, (if you're recommended to go there). They have very high standards, so I'm super lucky to have gotten in. I'm now in year four (I'm almost 16).
I can animate, help in developing applications, or make you coffee or tea (which I would be happy to do, too, of course!)
I'm eager to learn and help, and those things just so happen to be my two life goals.
