The internship helped me become more comfortable with guiding a group of people and it developed my leadership skills. The week after I got back from the internship I started RA training at my school; the internship was the perfect preparation for becoming an RA and leading my peers. I also became much more comfortable giving a talk in front of big groups. We were given tools and training during the internship that made me much more aware of how to present myself in front of groups.
The best part about life after the internship is that you get to go to all sorts of cool places in the months and years to come. I have done several conferences where I get to meet MKs from all over and I also get to reunite with other interns! Doesn’t get much better than that.
