In terms of career development, this internship gave me plenty of insight for my future taking into consideration both of my degrees. It gave me the experience to be successful and broadened the employment opportunities available to me upon graduation. I know from my experience that I can choose to work in the communication field immediately out of college. Not only did this internship allow me to apply what I learned in classes, it also allowed me to develop professional skills for any career.

My internship wasn't just about technical growth in a niche field, it was an adventure in adaptability, cross-cultural communication, and resilience. This experience has shaped my academic interests, career path, and professional development and will undoubtedly influence my future..
