I was responsible for...
My job responsibilities at my internship are scheduling exams for students with accommodations, acting as a supervisor when needed, and guiding a set of students through academic coaching.

I accomplished...
My greatest accomplishment is making a difference for students through academic coaching. I meet with students on a weekly/bi weekly basis who are currently on academic probation or warning. I act as a mentor for them to assist them with time management or study skills to help them succeed.

I learned...
I have learned so many new skills and how to apply them in certain situations. My internship can be quite a disruptive environment and I had to adjust to that. I also have many great networking sources now through this internship that I will cherish for a long time.

Advice for others...
Don't be afraid to ask questions! I definitely had to get over that fear going into my internship, but there isn't a question that is a bad question.
