What was the best part of your experience?

The best part of my experience was the opportunity to live in New York City, meet new friends, and experience the city with individuals I would have never met had it not been for the scholarship. There is an abundance of things to do and see in New York City; when I was not working at my internship, I made it a priority to go out as much as I could and take advantage of the opportunity to live in such an amazing place and meet such amazing people through housing and work.

Getting hands on experience every day for the entire summer was invaluable to my preparation to enter the real world and the full-time workforce after I graduate from college this year.

How did this experience impact you academically?

This experience broadened my horizons and made me think differently in a consulting-type role. I was given a lot of responsibility in terms of dealing with and doing research on company financial investments and decisions that I could not have simulated through typical collegiate academics. Getting hands on experience every day for the entire summer was invaluable to my preparation to enter the real world and the full-time workforce after I graduate from college this year.

How will this experience impact your career goals?

This experience helped me to sort out and focus on what I like and what I do not like. Instead of simply following what I am interested in, I was given the opportunity this summer to find out what I am actually good and talented at. I had always focused solely on medical school, but through a lot of time and consideration over the summer, I changed my course a little bit. I will be pursuing healthcare consulting for a few years to see where that takes me and what sparks my interest from there.
