I write my last post in reflection of the 10 weeks I spent in New York, of what I learned and the experiences I gained. I’ve solved several of the mysteries and obscurities that come along with applying to graduate school. I’ve learned how to write a clear and helpful literature review (as well as how not to). I experiences New York pizza and bagels (they really are in a league of their own). But my experiences cannot be diminished to merely skills gained or meetings had. The amalgamation of my time spent in New York was inexplicably perfect: it demonstrated to me what I had to look forward to. I now know I want to end up in New York, to live and to work there. I know more precisely what I want to study. Although I’d like to avoid the cliche internship response of “I learned so much and I now I know for sure that I do/do not want to do ______”, I cannot. This internship was a learning experience in a myriad of ways, which would be impossible to numerate. I am incredibly grateful for the opportunities afforded to me because of the University of Michigan, and by the LSA Internship Scholarship, without which I would never have been able to pull this off.
