I’ve been thinking a lot lately about what I’m getting out of this internship. After all, I’ve put a ton of time and effort into it, and I’d like to think it’s for a good reason.
I was recently talking with my dad, and he was recalling some of his college memories. It made me think about what I’ll remember someday when I’m looking back at these years. For this internship in particular, I know I won’t remember the money. I will probably remember the skills I’ve learned, because I expect that I’ll continue to build on them moving forward. But far and away, the thing I’ll remember the most is the people. The ones I’ve gotten to work with, and learn from. It’s been a pleasure getting to know all of them, and they’re what has made my time here over the summer worth it. Don’t get me wrong, I tremendously appreciate the work and the opportunity, but it really is the people that make spending time someplace worth it. It’s all about the team.
