"Don't be afraid to learn! You won't know everything about the internship that you start. Go in with an open mind that is ready to take on new tasks, and be sure to learn from them. Take every task given and do your absolute best with it. Know that an internship is largely what you make it to be--make it something meaningful."
Alum: Megan Christofield, Peace Studies Major
Implants Access Officer and Proposal Manager, Jhpiego

"There's a great quote from Howard Thurman I have posted in my office, 'Don't ask what the world needs. Ask what makes you come alive, and go do it. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive.' I've witnessed people in this field who purely enter in to 'make the world a better place,' but without the passion for the work that comes with that mission, they often fail or burnout from their misplaced efforts. Follow your heart and your interests!"
