An intern came to work with us from the USA!

Hello, my name is Charles Schonberger.

I am originally from Alexandria, Virginia, and am currently staying in London for an internship with Be Enriched.

I have been working at Be Enriched for just short of a month now, and it has already been an eye-opening experience. Working with the company at their numerous community canteens have been unlike anything I’ve done previously during my short time in the working world.

At the canteens, I have met many people of different ages, ethnicities and backgrounds that otherwise I never would have. The stories from their lives have been transformational on me. Hearing of their hardships, how they have overcome them, and where they are now in life because of having dealt with these dilemmas has been inspirational. Their stories of triumph over adversity all have something similar in common, the help from others around them. Depending on the story, they will even point to a friend across the table to give credit to them for their help. The bond these people share is nothing short of astounding. They have been able to bond thanks to their difficult times, and it has made them stronger and better people because of it.

Through my experiences of meeting these lovely people, I’ve been shown parts of the world I was otherwise ignorant about before. I like to think of the people at the canteens as friends, and I look forward to seeing them for the rest of my time in London.
