    Hello, I am a second year student doing a science degree Bsc Hons Cosmetic Science at London college of fashion. I have a question whether is it possible to apply internship at US but I am an international student as it would be more tougher?I am really interested working in US and I did apply to Amyway but they have found someone more suitable.
