This flash internship in technology was a highlight of my college experience. I had hands-on experience in fields outside of computer science such as sales and product management. However, I also met Michigan alumni at Facebook and Pinterest that had projects in computer science that intrigued me. At DocuSign, I got the opportunity to talk one-on-one with a data scientist as well. After talking to these alumni, I noticed that none of them knew they were going to end up in a top-tier company during their undergraduate years and had a straight path to success. However, their undergraduate education taught them how to learn and what they did and did not enjoy.
Overall, this trip has encouraged my passion for computer science. I am thankful to the LSA Opportunity Hub for allowing me to travel to San Francisco and visiting such amazing companies.
