Meet the New Intern Monkeysby Bianca van der Bergh

  • Google+

This month we have welcomed three new intern monkeys to our team. One of them is from the awesome Mother City, while the other two are from Finland and Holland. For you to get to know them better, we decided to ask them about what they will be doing while they're with us and some other weird and wonderful quetions. We're sure that you'll find some of their answers as entertaining as we did. They even got creative with the whiteboard.

Here they are...

Some food and drink for sure, and my laptop to stay connected
