What was the best part of your experience?

The best part about my experience as an intern for CHUBB was the professional experience that I gained. I quickly learned how to conduct myself professionally in meetings and over email by interacting with and learning from my coworkers around me. I also had the privilege of gaining knowledge from experienced insurance professionals in a variety of fields from an array of backgrounds and areas of expertise during my time at CHUBB. The best part of working with these professionals was having the chance to sit down with many of them and discuss how their career path lead to their current position. This gave me invaluable insight to the wide array of opportunities that lie ahead of me upon graduation.

I am more motivated than ever in the classroom as I know that the technical and interpersonal skills I am learning and improving here at Penn State are shaping me to be a well-rounded and experienced worker

How did this experience impact you academically?

This experience has motivated me academically. Working in a professional environment, I had the ability to see myself as a member of a team and felt as though my academic experience had greatly prepared me for the job I performed. I am more motivated than ever in the classroom as I know that the technical and interpersonal skills I am learning and improving here at Penn State are shaping me to be a well-rounded and experienced worker.

How will this experience impact your career goals?

This experience helped me fine tune my career goals. I always knew I wanted to go to law school upon graduation, but I never knew what aspect of the law I was intrigued by or where I saw myself after obtaining my law degree. After working in a corporate environment, I have come to realize my deep interest in corporate, transactional law and have tailored my studies here at Penn State to set me up for that goal. I am now pursuing the Smeal Business Fundamentals Certificate in addition to my Business minor. I chose to pursue these business classes so that I may have a better understanding of business before going to law school. Working with and learning from the experiences of CHUBB attorneys shed light on an aspect of the law I never previously considered, and I am now more than ever excited to take the next steps in order to achieve my goal of working in transactional law.

How has the Paterno Fellows Program had an impact on this experience?

My involvement in the Paterno Fellows Program has completely shaped my college experience and my future goals. Paterno Fellows has allowed me to grow as both a student and an individual. My leadership positions, internship experience, philanthropic actions, rigorous classes, independent research, and ethics studies have shaped me to be a well-rounded student and prepared me for this experience. When I first arrived to Penn State and opted to be an aspirant in the Paterno Fellow Program I never anticipated to learn and grow so much from an academic opportunity. The College of the Liberal Arts has given me every resource possible to be successful, and participating in the Paterno Fellows Program is just one of the opportunities I am so grateful was offered to me. Paterno Fellows has challenged me both inside and outside of the classroom, but most importantly, it has shaped me to be an active and diligent member of my community and within any organization I chose to be a part of.
