    "My favorite project as an intern was definitely working on the NAACP 100th anniversary event. I was all hands-on with the event for weeks and right up to the actual main event where we hosted President Barack Obama as the guest speaker and Chaka Khan as the main performer!"

"My internship as a stagere at the five star Michelin Le Sirenuse Hotel in Positano, Italia has been exciting! The challenge of working in a different language than my native one has been nothing short of motivational. Learning Italian and the hotel business has also been a hands-on experience and exposed me to many things, from the food to the thousands of stairs to navigate. I've learned to work every aspect of Le Sirenuse Hotel - switchboard, reception, reservations, clients, and much more. While traveling along the Almafi Coast, I have met several culinary interns who like myself are most grateful for this amazing opportunity. I continue to work towards greatness each day and learn skills to help me in my future career!"
