For most of the summer I lived in in Middlesex, New Jersey which is about 45 minutes from the city with my family. But for a while I also stayed with my mentor in Hell’s Kitchen about 5 minutes from Times Square! For fun I’ve visited parks, museums, gone to shows, and have eaten A LOT of food. My two favorite restaurants are without a doubt Madame Vo and Nobu. Incredible food, and the atmosphere was just as fun.
As I look back on the internship I’ve realized that anything truly is possible if you’re willing to put your all into it. I have a better understanding of how to communicate with people professionally. Also, I now have a better understanding of quantitative data and analytics. For me working with a thriving startup was great because now I know exactly what it takes to create one myself and that’s something I’ll always be grateful for. My advice to other students is, if you have a goal or a vision, go for it don’t wait. Take things one step at a time until you get to see that vision come into fruition. The journey is the best part.
