My Baltic internship at CCDCOE in Estonia this summer has been an extraordinary experience that I will cherish forever. As an intern at CCDCOE, I’ve had the privilege of immersing myself in cutting-edge cyber defense projects while also collaborating with brilliant minds from around the world. Beyond the work, Estonia’s welcoming atmosphere made exploring the country’s history and culture a joy. From walking through the Kumu to watching Nublu perform twice, I’ve loved every moment here. Living and working in Estonia has not only equipped me with a clear understanding of cyber defense but has also given me a profound appreciation for the country’s unique blend of innovation and tradition. This summer has undeniably been a transformative period in both my professional growth and personal experiences — I could not be more thankful for this experience!
