Intern at TCD trust

Dear Friends of the TCD Trust,

First I would like to introduce myself. I am Carlijn Smeets, 20 years old and I come from The Netherlands. In The Netherlands I study Commercial Management at the Zuyd University in Sittard. I choose Marketing, Communication and Social media as my specialty. I am doing an internship in South Africa for 6 months now, I arrived in August and I will stay till the end of January. I started my internship at Ashanti Lodge in Cape Town. Lisa Krohn, owner of Ashanti Lodge, is one of the four trustees of TCD Trust. When I heard of all the great projects TCD Trust is doing, I was very excited when I got the chance to work for TCD Trust. I will help Bronwen Wetton, the manager, with all the social media activities like facebook, blogging, newsletter and online marketing. Besides that, I will also visit the projects to get a clear idea of what the impact is for the community. I am very impressed of what the TCD Trust can mean for these communities. I have already visited the RGG Creche in Philippi and the Library in Hanover Park.

Every Tuesday I will be working with Bronwen Wetton for the TCD Trust. I am very glad I got the chance to work with Bronwen, she is a very nice lady and I learn a lot form her about South Africa. She has given me the chance to be involved in the projects and mean something for TCD Trust. And because I am a social media student, please go to our Facebook page and ‘ like’ it. This is a good way to stay updated with all the good things the TCD Trust is doing :-)

Thanks,
Carlijn
