Final Reflection

My internship has concluded and I must admit, I have very mixed emotions. I experienced some anticipated challenges. I also experienced challenges that came as a total shock to me. Through it all, I feel that I have grown both academically and personally. I am now better equipped to guide others through certain pitfalls because I managed to navigate through them myself. I emerged unscathed and what’s most important, I emerged stronger because of the trials I experienced during my internship.

I learned a lot about myself this summer. Advocating for the poor, undeserved, marginalized and less privileged now takes precedence over earning a large salary. I now have a new perspective on my career choices, thanks largely to my summer internship. My career focus has changed dramatically and my course selection going forward will reflect my newly discovered purpose.
