Drinking tea with Camille

Camille Meuger internship with NORD-T

Please, tell us who you are.

I'm a 23 years old french student. I'm currently studying international trade, and that's why I had the opportunity to do an internship in Finland. I love hanging out with friends, but I'm also a girl who likes to take long walk on the beach at sunset time on my own.

Tells us the story of why did you decide to come to Finland for your internship? Also, why come to NORD-T?

Visiting or even living in a Nordic country has always been a dream of my mine. So, when I knew I could live anywhere in the world for three months, I had to try. Also, I had to choose a company to do an internship. I wanted to work for a company which I liked their products and their values. That's why, when I found NORD-T, I was so excited. I've sent an email, and then here I am, working with two boss ladies.

When you drink a cup of tea, how do you prefer it?

I like to drink my tea right after class when I'm home. I love black tea, and I don't add anything (No milk, no sugar, no honey). I like the taste of berries in my tea.

What is your favourite NORD-T blend?

My favourite Nord-T blend is Barefoot Biking. It has this beautiful red colour when you pour it into your cup, and yet the taste is lighter than you imagine. It reminds me of the forest and berries and is perfect for breakfast.

You are from Nantes, France. Can you share your best tip on what to do in Nantes?

The must-do in Nantes is "les machines de l'île", where you can walk alongside a 12-meters high elephant machine and see all kind of machines, it's a wonderful experience. If the weather is great, you can also visit "duc de Bretagne" castle and walk around "le jardin des plantes". To end the day, I would advise you to go to the "Bouffay" quarter where you can find all sorts of restaurants, Japanese, French, Italian and more...

What inspires you at the moment?

As spring is just here and I'm in Finland for the first time, nature is what inspires me the most right now. Being outside, by the sea or the forest, especially around sunset time and enjoy the moment. I feel fortunate to be here, and I can't wait to discover and to learn more about this country.

Word is yours; anything else you would like to add?

I want to thank Nina and Mirka for their welcome. It's been a dream to be here, and working with these ladies. Also, always keep believing, it may not come right now, but we never know what the future holds.

Well, we would like to say a big thanks to Camille for coming to Finland and spending the time with us. If everyone in next generation are like her we have nothing to worry about - the world will be left in good hands. xoxo, Nina & Mirka
