Doing my internship in Wuhan, China has really opened up new doors and opportunities for me.
I have learned to be independent, self-reliant and confident in whatever task I was given to do.
Being a Malay student, I was hesitant about going to China for my internship. Food was a major
concern; but thankfully, there are Halal restaurants to serve the needs of Muslim there.
The job that I was doing in Wuhan is very interesting. I was given the chance to handle various
Operating Systems (OS) and also OS of different languages. Working in a foreign environment
has allowed me to understand the style of working and a whole new way of communicating with
the people there. The working system in Wuhan is not as tough as I thought it would be. The staff
in the company is very down-to-earth, very friendly and approachable. Just when I thought
communication would be a problem, I was wrong. The staff knows how to speak in English, even
if it’s not fluent, but it’s good enough to be understood.
Doing overseas internship is a once in a lifetime experience for me. If I am given the opportunity to
return to work there, I will surely grab it. Being away from Singapore and the comfort of home was
a difficult decision at first, and trying to adapt to the weather and environment was tough too, but as
time passes by, everything became normal. I can proudly say that I made a good choice, one that
certainly enriches my learning experience here in Singapore Polytechnic.
