What has been your favorite part of the internship thus far?

Connecting with peers and learning information that I want to know. I love being a part of something bigger and improving my skills every day.

What skills are you hoping to gain or build by the end of this internship in August?

A skill would like to gain is being able to understand communication between departments and how everything works in ITS. Another skill I would like to gain is in adaptability - being able to adapt to the changing world of accessibility fast and easy.

What assumptions did you have coming into the internship program?

An assumption I had was I would be able to develop skills further and being able to work alongside peers and other interns. I thought working in an office environment may pose a challenge because I have never done it before but it's very welcoming.
