Student Quote: This internship program really helped me grow as a person and professional. I went into this program feeling a bit lost with no experience and thinking that I would not get this opportunity. I had some fear that graduation was approaching and I didn’t know what my next step was. However, I heard of this opportunity and even though I was scared of not getting this internship, I challenged myself to try and just step out of my comfort zone. We often grow in situations where we are uncomfortable and that was the case here. I am very happy that I was able to have this opportunity and learn so much.
