Hear Nehaarika’s story
Nehaarika Mulukutla, a recent graduate from Northwestern in the US, gives her perspectives on her two-month internship in Bali with Start Me Up before joining McKinsey in the US.
“The internship’s a really great way to get hands-on experience and not doing the typical grunt work that an intern would do.”
“When I found an internship opportunity abroad, I was excited and when I realized it was in Bali, I was sold.”
“I had an incredible boss. She gave me a lot of freedom but also gave me a lot of instruction in terms of guiding me.”
“I wanted to do something mission critical and she helped me do that. So the internship was incredible.”
