From Berlin to ABT

31 Oct

I applied for an internship in the executive office at ABT beginning of 2017 and received my letter of acceptance in April. What happened then was a lot of planning and bureaucracy especially the visa process took quite a while. I finally got to New York by the end of July and started my internship in August. Altogether I stayed for 3 months for a full-time internship and had the greatest time at ABT.

What did I enjoy most during my time at ABT?

Definitely the exceptional people who work for ABT! Each single one of them is so nice and thoughtful, whenever I had a question they took their time to help, even though they are all very busy all the time. I could not have wished for a better supervisor than Brittany was for me and a more helpful person than Jillian to sit opposite of my desk!

There were two events that stood out during my time. One of them was seeing ABT perform at Lincoln Center during the Fall Season and being able to go backstage, seeing the theater and meeting the people who make sure, that those amazing performances can happen.

The other remarkable event wasn’t really an event, it was something I experienced at a usual work day in the office. I was supposed to type up notes from a senior staff meeting, where each of them explained in keywords, what they think ABT does, why they do it and how. Reading the notes, I realized that the people working at ABT are so passionate about what they are doing and that they are in it with their hearts and souls, which made me realize that this is something I want to do achieve some time, feeling that strongly about the work I am doing!

Having said that, it is back to Berlin for me and hopefully see you soon ABT!
