Daniel Reyes is a big dreamer who likes to inspire people to go further and achieve their goals. He was born in Mexico City and has lived in different countries such as Canada, US, Japan, China and now is based in Bangkok, Thailand. He is passionate about exercising, practices surfing, and used to be a semi-professional swimmer achieving the 3rd national place at the age of 13 on backstroke style.
He believes in balance, dreams about being able to travel to space at some point in life and wants to become a private pilot. He can be considered as a geek as he enjoys watching documentaries about science, nature, space, life and quantum mechanics. In the other hand, loves electronic music, salsa and music festivals that last for days.
At the age of 21 he started his first company that evolved into an online marketing agency and a year later started Worldwide Internships based on his past working experiences in Shanghai and Vancouver.

Daniela was born in Mexico City, and is the youngest of three siblings. She majored in International Hotel Management, where she had the opportunity to do her internship at Walt Disney World Resorts, in Florida. She considers that it was best experience of her life because she got to meet her second family and realized her true passion is customer service. It was a dream come true for her because she has always been obsessed with Disney.
Daniela joined Worldwide Internships team almost a year ago as an International Recruiter. She is fascinated by what she does since she has the opportunity to meet people from all over the world. She recently traveled to Argentina (one of her favorite places) to recruit students and give informational sessions. A curious fact about her?

Cass was born in small-town USA (Tuscola, IL to be precise) and moved to Mexico City two years ago to pursue her dream of living and working abroad. She has always loved reading because it was a way to explore the world. Once she got her first taste of international travel in Jamaica when she was 13, she hasn’t looked back since.
Her life dream is to travel to every country in the world. She’d also love to be the owner of her own hostel (or hostels!) someday. So, for the last decade or so, she has tried to tick as many country boxes as possible, now having gone to 22 countries (plus 46/50 states in the USA and she’s up to 15/33 states visited in Mexico).
The thing she loves most about working at Worldwide Internships is the ability to be able to help students land their dream internship abroad, since that’s the experience she’s living now. She was drawn to the position since she was looking for something that was a mix of international, hospitality, and HR. She couldn’t believe it when she heard what the vacancy had to offer! Believe it or not, Cass had never considered working in Mexico before a work opportunity brought her year those 2 years ago. However, she is so glad she came.
