Rachel Sweger


About: Rachel interned in Sydney, Australia with Students Athletes Abroad as a GO Your Way, helping the organization with social media content and running sports camps.

"My biggest personal takeaway from my trip to Australia was that I am capable of far more than I imagined. I can independently travel the world and can create a network of people anywhere I go. My biggest professional takeaway from my time in Australia is that my Susquehanna education has equipped me well to make an immediate impact in whatever company I may become employed in. My acquired skills enabled me to fully embrace my internship role and help further the company's efforts." - Rachel Sweger

I am endlessly thankful for the opportunities that the SWSB has provided me; my future in the field of international business will be characterized by these powerful early-life experiences." - Ciara Middleton
