Intern What to Expect
ANDREA: I was born in Togo, West Africa.
FREDERICO: I’m originally from Buenos Aires, Argentina.
NAM: I actually come from on traditional back ground. I’m a self-taught
KATIE: I’m from Connecticut, and I’m at the Darden School of Business at the
University of Virginia.
SAMANTHA: I’m a rising senior at Stony Brook University, and this summer, I
got to work that WeWork.
PETER: Over the course of this 10-week program, Samantha’s helped me out
with a myriad of different projects, including adding creative input in the
video with voiceover to one of our courses on suspicious packages.
SAMANTHA: I was able to create content, take pictures, and edit video. At

KATIE: I worked on a couple of amazing projects this summer where WeWork is
expanding to about seven markets in Southeast Asia. And I work to help put
together the strategy and playbook for that team.
SAMANTHA: We were able to participate in multiple lunch-and-learns and
different social events with other interns. Being able to sit down, have
dinner, and interact with different interns from different sectors within
WeWork was really fun.
ANDREA: More than anything, what attracted me was the values, especially the
idea of wanting people to come to work and be their most authentic self.
FREDERICO: I think that equality and inclusion is the future. And I think

inclusivity. And being able to join a company like that while in college and
seeing how everyone here is genuinely happy and supportive of one another and
wanting to come into work smiling every day, couldn’t say no to that.
SAMANTHA: WeWork is really a place where you can grow. And the whole,
“do what you love” thing, is really true here. People really do what
