Brief: Laboratory intern at Chocolat Frey in Buchs, at the canton of Aarau, Switzerland

Share your achievement/success story in detail. I have been selected for 3 months { August¬October 2018} internship in Switzerland, working as a laboratory intern in Chocolat Frey in Buchs, in the canton of Aarau.

Tell us more about your journey leading up to this moment. It was a quiet nerve racking journey, whilst driven by Motivation, hardworking and self-believe too. Well, it all started in January right after my december holiday when i came across the advert on NUST Website. Right there, i decided to take on the challenge so i started enquiring about the entire application process, then evenually i applied..... Later, i was selected for the first interview with a panel of the founder and Director of B360, B360 Program Coordinator and NUST staff, made my way through again to the second interview this time it was only with the founder and director of B360 Mrs Sabina Balmer and to my suprise i become one of the sucessful students.

What does this achievement mean to you and how will you use it to motivate others? Words cant describe how this opportunity means to me..... Im really learning alot and to be intergrated in the Swiss community is just an amazing Blessing! To have come this far only means one thing: SCARIFICE! Meaning i had to deprive myself of good sleep, having good times with friends and spending most of my time reading and occupied with schoolwork. Now, this achievement merely means I am reaping the fruits of the seed {Scarifice} i have planned in the long run.

What are your plans for the future? Complete my honours degree and looking forward for much greater opportunities that are laying ahead
