Congratulations to our intern of the week, Florian Kleinhoven!
Florian is from Needham, Massachusetts but is studying civil and environmental engineering at the University of Newcastle in the United Kingdom. He is currently interning with the International Design Centre and hopes to work on projects that will help build infrastructure to accommodate comfortable, healthy and sustainable living for everyone regardless of socio-economic, demographic background while ensuring that everyone is offered equal opportunities and a safe working environment regardless of where they are from, what gender they identify with, or their political orientation.
When not working, Florian enjoys reading about history and art and likes to take photos of some of the Illinois landscape. While the roads hurt him as a civil engineer, he does enjoy the polite drivers in the region.
So come by and meet Florian and some of the other interns form the region at our next intern mixer next Thursday from 5:00-6:30pm. In his words, “The mixers have been really helpful to socialize with similar people and get to meet young people with similar backgrounds.” And don’t be afraid to talk to Florian in almost any Romance language. We can’t wait to see you there!
