What has been your favorite part of the internship thus far?
My favorite part of the internship so far has been getting to know all my fellow interns in the cohort and learning from each other as we work together at the retreats
What skills are you hoping to gain or build by the end of this internship in August?
By the end of the summer, I hope to gain more expertise with Amazon Web Services, continue to develop my presentation and communication skills, and learn more about project management through our cohort project.
What assumptions did you have coming into the internship program?
Coming into the internship program, I was expecting to get assigned specific day-to-day work, and I didn't realize that I would be able to bring my own ideas and projects to the table. So far there has been a lot more autonomy than I was expecting, so I can approach my goals in my own way, which I appreciate.
