Mahé Becker went through many ups and downs during her internship in the USA. She was plunged into a completely new world for five months, where her experiences were quite different from anything she had encountered before. 

San Francisco is a melting pot of many different cultures. Its small size forces people of all backgrounds to interact with one other, creating this unique blend of multiculturalism and a cross-cultural understanding. The Hispanic neighbourhood called The Mission, with its flavours, music, and murals, China Town, Japan Town, or the charismatic Italian North Beach, make it possible to dive into a different culture so profoundly that you forget that you are in the United States. This uniqueness intrigued me and was the reason why I chose to intern in “San Pancho”.
