Prime Minister’s Scholarship for Asia, Global Internship in Mumbai
My name is Daniel, and in 2023 I am entering my third year of a Bachelor of Engineering (speccing in EngSci) at the University of Auckland.
I am super excited to be able to represent UoA and New Zealand as part of the Prime Minister’s scholarship for Asia program in 2023. I will be travelling to Mumbai to complete a 6-week internship in January and February. I will be using this blog to share some of the highlights (and potentially lowlights) of that experience.
I am from Auckland and love to play squash, football, and cricket and hang with friends. I am super excited to watch a cricket game in India and hopefully to play sports there, too, and get immersed in the culture!
See you soon!
