Meet Xport’s Autumn Intern: Diwakar, Nepal


Hello, my names is Diwakar (or Diw) and I am from Kathmandu, the capital city of Nepal. I’ve been living in Seinäjoki for 3 years as I am a student of International Business and culture in SeAMK.  Currently, I am a final year student and the final phase of my studies is to do an internship.

Luckily, I got an opportunity to experience an international company in Seinäjoki. My purpose of doing an internship in Xport is to widen my knowledge, to learn to operate a business successfully in the right way. My field of interest is market research and marketing and to know day-to-day operations of a business.

My past studies were related to business and I have worked as a marketing officer in a company in Nepal. I also have an experience of as a partner in a business in Nepal which didn’t work out so well. It is said “Learning from the mistake is the best way to educate.”

Even after living many years away from my family, living and studying in Finland was a great challenge for me, as there are vast cultural differences, lifestyle, language and so on.

This is my first experience in a Finnish company to learn overall business and to apply the knowledge that I have learned from my studies. I want to start a business in the future. Therefore, my time in Xport is a very important time for me and I hope I will be able to meet the expectations of Xport and the team.
