”I am extremely grateful to my coworkers and supervisors, I believe they truly made my experience all that more meaningful. We were all able to build a beautiful relationship both inside and outside the office and it made it easier to collaborate on projects, share new ideas, ask tough questions, etc. This internship contributed to both my personal and professional development in the sense that as it was an experiential learning experience I was able to gain a worldwide perspective through the work I was doing.”
