The Future Global Leader paid internship program at MITC provides a framework for young people to gain valuable experience working with Maine companies to increase their global markets. This year, we are please to recognize Apryl King with the Future Global Leader Award. A Saco native and recent graduate of the University of Southern Maine, she excelled in many aspects of the Research Assistant position and developed a keen interest in learning more about the Maine companies we work with on a day to day basis. After completing the MITC internship, she transitioned to a Food Export USA internship, which allowed her to remain with
our team and focus on working with our specialty food, seafood, beverage, and agricultural companies. In October 2018, Apryl accepted a full-time position as Liaison with Food Export – Northeast in Philadelphia, where she continues to work with Maine’s seafood, beverage, and food companies.
