Meet Julie!

Hi, my name is Julie.

I have now started as an intern at Asap-Norway. I will be here every Thursday for 10 weeks. I have already experienced a little of the everyday life in Asap and so far it’s very exciting, and I have already learned new stuff.

I was recently given the opportunity to attend a conference called "SHE conference", and I would like to share a little about my experience there. First and foremost I attended so many different, interesting talks. There was especially one quote that I still remember quite clearly: "If you wanna and fast, go alone. If you wanna go far, go together.” I believe that it is important for established businesses to reflect on this quote in their everyday life. This is also something that I will take back with me in my own everyday school life.

As I was listening to the inspiring talks, it struck me that time has changed. More and more people are focusing on shedding a light on the reality of the world of business and asks questions. This also applies to young people, especially when we think of equality of women and men in business and industry. There are more and more female investors, but the percentage of men who start their own business is still incredibly high.

I look forward to the interesting, educational and exciting time ahead with Asap Norway.
