Q: How did the internship develop your professional experience?
A: The internship introduced me to several interesting industries—travel and tourism, health care, nonprofit and government. It was an invaluable experience to learn how they all apply marketing, creative and PR to advance the meaningful work that they do.

Q: How were you challenged during your internship and how did those challenges grow your professional skills?
A: Juggling multiple projects for multiple clients and agency staff was a big challenge at first. I had to think critically about prioritizing my time and keeping track of deadlines.
