At first I was afraid of falling behind and not having the strength to catch back up, but after a few hours I knew I was in the right place. On February 25, 2016 my journey began. It all started with a beautiful morning drive to the airport. Four hours later I landed in a place that was unfamiliar and soon became a home away from home. The smell of the ocean bought back many memories of my high school days laying on the beach in Florida sharing memories and laughs with some of my childhood best friends. It seemed to be deja vu. The internship training in San Diego was a once in a lifetime experience. I have made many connections and found strengths in myself that never knew I had. The most important part of this whole experience, was having the ability to meet an amazing group of bright and successful individuals who share the same passions and goals as me. I believe after attending this training I brought back many memories, laughs, as well as the strength to overcome any obstacles that may occur along my journey.
I would like to share this quote that sums up the training experience for me. “Find life experiences and swallow them whole. Travel. Meet many people. Go down some dead ends and explore dark alleys. Try everything. Exhaust yourself in the glorious pursuit of life.” Author Unknown
