I originally signed up for this program because my mom brought it to my attention and gently nudged me towards signing up for it. I thought I would be treated the way interns are treated on TV shows, doing tedious chores that the workers just laid on the eager interns, but what I got was so much more. I found a job where I learned things, within minutes of my first time there, where I can independently do things that I wouldn't even have the faintest clue about a month prior, and all under the kind and humorous tutelage of an understanding mentor. Taking part in this internship has changed the way I view professional careers and what they can be and I'm honored to be a part of it all."
