My name is Novi. I’m in the third year of studying architecture at Petra Christian University. It’s been a pleasure for me to be able to take an internship programme at RAW. At first, I didn’t know at all about Mr. Realrich Syarief and RAW. The first time I knew about it when he came to our university to give a lecture.
When it’s the time for me to decide where to take an internship, I remembered that RAW accepts student to do an internship at their office. I asked my senior at Petra Christian University that took an internship at RAW last year. They said that they learnt so many things during the internship and got a lot of new experiences. After hearing the story, It made me want to take internship at RAW because I like to learn something new. Besides, I want to try to live away and independently from my parent. I immediately sent an E-mail to apply the internship. At first, I didn’t expect to be accepted at RAW because there are many friends of mine applied there too. I was so shocked that I was accepted at RAW.
From this Summer Internship Programme, I hope that I can learn something new about architect’s job from designing stage until the construction in real. I also hope I can get a new knowledge and experience from Mr. Realrich who had ever worked to Norman Foster and also from others senior at RAW. I want to make a good relationship with everyone at RAW during the internship to make a link because it is very important for working in the future.
My first impression at RAW, it has a friendly and warm atmosphere. The office is not so big but also not too small. It makes everyone close to each other. Mr. Realrich and the other seniors are so kind and funny. They like to make a joke and interact with us. With this kind of atmosphere, it makes me very excited and anxious about what I will do the next day.
