A Conversation with PINC Internship Founder Lisette Miranda

“What has been the most rewarding part of creating PINC so far?

All the young women I meet and talk to are truly inspiring. I entered college in 2002 and graduated in 2006 – yup, proudly dating myself. And since then, think about how so much has changed with the advancement of technology (I sound like my mother). But seriously, I am so fascinated to see how much young women are driven and passionate about subjects, and I think it’s largely due to how technology has allowed them to break gender stereotypes and norms because they can connect with anyone across the globe.

You can now see successful people who look like you, speak your language, share your religion and values and it’s not just within the four walls of your home. At the end of the programs, the students tell me “this experience changed my life,” “this has been the best summer of my life,” and “I feel like I’m a different person,” and I always tell them that each and every one of them has changed and inspired me. It’s an invaluable experience for me as much as it is for them.”

Careers in Spain: Lisette M., CEO of PINC Internship

“Tell us more about PINC and what participants can expect.

Nowadays I’m back in New York City and have launched my own business, PINC Internship. PINC is an internship abroad program for young women, and I work with students who are in college, on a gap-year or completing a masters who, instead of doing their summer internship in their hometown or near their college, they do it in Madrid!

I was inspired to launch this program when I came across several Americans doing their internships abroad and I noticed there was a need for a female-focused program that had support before, during and after. So, after a little encouragement and a large shove – I designed the PINC program. Now I live 10 months in NYC and 2 months in Madrid – not too shabby!”

PRIVATE ICON: Lisette Miranda of PINC Internship

“It’s been eight years since I graduated from university. I feel like I bottled up eight years into an eight week experience that touches upon all the milestones of being a young woman and packaged it up nicely and put a little bow on top.” Read more here.


Expat Interview: Lisette Miranda

“CiM: Was it easy to make friends in Madrid?
LM: Madrid is such a cosmopolitan city and because of this, getting involved is very easy. There are meet groups for many different interests, including language exchanges, networking events, theatre groups, running groups, and so much more. The American community in particular is a very strong and supportive one. I think being social and creating a support network here is very realistic. You will get as much from it as you give!” Read more here.
