My team was very supportive throughout my 9 weeks and made me feel comfortable from my first day till my last. In my opinion the best way to approach being a part of an internship is by viewing it as a stepping stone to future opportunities.

Coming fresh from University, my surrounding team members guided and facilitated my learning whilst giving me confidence to follow my instincts and approach my projects with autonomy. This gave me the opportunity to develop my capabilities, and learn my personal working style.
