I am a student from HEC Paris in a gap year. For now, I am doing an internship in Private Equity at CVC Capital Partners, where I assist the team by doing market analysis, benchmarking, due diligence review... For my second internship, I want to discover the start-up environment.
Let me describe, maybe not the "most impressive" thing that I have done but the thing I am the most proud of. During my last high school year, I felt that something was missing. I wanted to be useful and important. That is how, after many researchs, I found a great association I became a member of. It connects children and students with learning difficulties, with people that are willing to help them voluntarily from the same neighbourhood. I met an adorable girl, three years younger than me, studying in my high school and whose parents did not have enough money to pay extra lessons. For a year, we studied together twice a week ; I was coaching her in French literature and in Mathematics and she did make some progress.
But the most enjoyable part is that we had a good proximity. I wanted her to feel close to me and feel comfortable talking to me about anything.
I am looking for an internship that will make me discover new ways of thinking and where creativity, innovation are central. I also want to work in a warm and dynamic environment, in which any member - with a great sense of team spirit- is valuable.
