You had to submit a short blog or vlog on a destination you've visited. It could've be about anywhere: what we were looking at is the way you recount the experience and how your personality shone through.


From there, UNiDAYS selected five finalists. These legends attended an interview with PEV, who picked the perfect candidate for this incredible internship.
