Tomas Alsenas | Bring Together Lithuania stories
Hello, my name is Tomas Alsenas and I am from Memphis, TN. I just graduated from Indiana University with a bachelor's in International Studies, focusing on Foreign Policy and the Baltics and Eastern Europe. This year, I am in Lithuania doing an internship at Invest Lithuania, a government Foreign Direct Investment and Business Development agency.
I chose an internship at Invest Lithuania because I wanted to be on the ground floor of global business development in Lithuania. I really found out how desirable Lithuania was as a business market. I gained the understanding of the market and how companies decide to come to Lithuania.
I think that climbing the Hill of the 3 Crosses on St. John's Day and watching the sunrise at about 3 am was one of the most memorable experiences I have had so far. We decided that it would be cool to see the 3 Crosses at night, so we decided to climb the hill. When we got up there, the sun was just beginning to rise, so we decided to stay and find a good spot in the surrounding area to see the sunrise. Although we got bitten by a million mosquitoes, it was still an incredible experience.
