My experience in the Mayor’s Office for the City of Detroit was absolutely incredible. It was unique in the sense that I was able to explore planning and development through field work, not just sitting at a desk. I enjoyed my drives on Jefferson and walks around the downtown area. I am optimistic about future development in the entire City of Detroit.
In my last week, I scheduled a couple coffee chats with City of Detroit employees, one in my department and another that I had met a couple years prior. I think this is perhaps one of the most important things to do in an internship, get to know the people you are working with everyday.
All in all, I had an amazing summer and I am grateful for this opportunity. The internship search for next summer is underway!
