I've only been in Zhuhai for slightly more than a week now, but I feel like I have been living in this city forever. Zhuhai has most of what I like about my hometown - plus there are some things that I have always missed in Russia. This perfect mix makes the beginning of my internship extremely pleasant and fruitful.
Zhuhai has a reputation of a garden city and not without reason: just some minutes before landing in the international airport of Zhuhai, I looked into the window and saw the city with lots and lots of trees intermingled with charming buildings which perfectly fit into natural surroundings. Zhuhai indeed boasts rich flora: trees, flowers, bushes and parks are everywhere.

I was in good hands and had nothing to worry about – after a representative of Intern China met me at the airport, I was introduced to my family . The moment I walked into the house I saw a table full of Chinese traditional food. What a great welcome...

I have tasted it all ! If you want to be healthy and fit, then Chinese cuisine might just be what the doctor ordered!
The next day Susan, a nice lady I was staying with, kindly agreed to show me around the city. We visited most of the famous spots of Zhuhai – from the Zhuhai Shijingshan Park (珠海石景山公園), which is a huge park, including an amazingly beautiful lake, to the Zhuhai fishing girl statue ( 珠海渔女) - the most famous tourist attraction of the city.
As the saying goes, East or West, home is best. However, after internship in Zhuhai I will defintely have two homes.

Then it was the time to get down to business so I was introduced to my boss and colleagues at the ODM group. From the very beginning I could feel the friendly atmosphere of this team. Being hard-working, ambitious and always ready to help my colleagues, I really want to drive the ODM group towards success.
Every day I get different tasks and this makes the job very challenging. If you want to unleash your creative potential and gain a unique experience of working in a great company, then the internship at ODM is what you need. Marketing, sales, working with international corporations are just a few areas this company works in. I am even getting involved in Facebook.
In your free time you will never get bored here: Intern China does its best to make the interns' free time useful and interesting. For the last week I have met lots and lots of my peers from various countries and backgrounds. This is amazing!
