“This internship was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life. Not only was I exposed to a network of support, but also made lifelong friends and professional connections during my time here. Highly recommend to college students who are just starting out on the intern scene, who wants to learn more about a certain industry but also about themselves. Being submerged in the vibrant environment of New York City, I have developed life skills as well as professional skills, and will definitely return for more.”
