Final Presentation and Last Day
Today was sadly our last day of our internship. We all dressed up, with Nate and I matching, and presented our final presentation to an audience of what looked like about thirty to forty people. I was a bit more nervous than yesterday but it still went very well and my father thought I sounded very confident and "animated." After, we all received a certificate of recognition and a letter of recommendation. I wanted to take a group picture but everyone left before we had the chance to. It was so great to have this opportunity to participate in this internship and meet so many talented, extremely intelligent, and creative people. Even though it probably took about four weeks and a few group bonding activities to become comfortable with everyone, I was able to get to know everyone and all their unique personalities very well. The best part about this internship would probably have to be the environment- the way how everyone was so knowledgeable about their project, and actually excited to learn and teach others. I'm really going to miss everyone, and the fact that I'll probably never see most of them is extremely saddening. I really hope this internship continues and grows because it is one of the best summer experiences I've ever had. Thank you so much for accepting me, this was definitely an experience of a lifetime.
