What I liked

This internship was amazing. I loved the independent nature of my work. I was able to complete projects on my own time and was trusted to complete that work without continuously updating my supervisor, which made me feel valued. Not only that, but I was able to choose what projects I wanted to take part in. My interests were taken into account, and essentially I had a self-guided internship. My supervisor was a key part of what made this internship so great. They were a mentor to me and we were able to connect on more levels than just work. They were so open to any and all questions that I had and provided me all the guidance I needed to have a successful internship.

What I wish was different

Due to the circumstances of the COVID-19 pandemic, my internship was remote. This had its benefits and drawbacks, as I wish I could have met my colleagues in person.
