- How has your internship differed from your beginning expectations? How has it been similar? Has anything surprised you about your internship?
This internship is everything I hoped for and more. I thought that I would not be able to be as hands on because I was not a medical professional. However, I was able to be fully hands-on with taking a patient’s vitals and potentially have a chance to lead an activity for students. I did not think that this internship would be as impactful as it is. Not only am I integrating into the Filipino culture, I also feel like I grew a lot professionally and mentally. I am learning Filipino and experiencing the different aspects of the culture that I would never have known about if not for this trip. I have also met a lot of people that inspire me with the different qualities that they bring to this trip.
