Kassandra Taming (24) is a student from the Netherlands who decided to do her Graphic Design internship here in Canada for 6 months. “I studied Restoration & Decoration back home. During those studies I was taught many creative painting and decoration styles, which I loved, but I wanted to turn my passion for design into a career in the visual communications industry, so what better way than to start with an international internship abroad?”

At that moment I finished my studies already, got my diplomas, there was nothing in the way to plan the trip. With help from Stepwest and the Dutch agency it quickly became reality”.

“Stepwest helped me out a lot by preparing everything before my arrival to Canada. They made the whole process easy! When I arrived, someone was already waiting for me to pick me up; I had a home ready and an internship in a Canadian company already waiting for me. No paperwork, no unwelcome surprises whatsoever. It was also really good to have a contact in Vancouver to reach out to if needed. Definitely worth it!”
