My Best Learning Experience
The learning experience that sticks out most in my mind revolves around participating in an internship for three months in Asia. I had the opportunity to immerse myself in a foreign culture and work environment which provided me the opportunity to learn so much about myself. Everything from navigating the language barrier, to exposure to weird and fascinating foods and witnessing extreme levels of poverty has shaped my personal and professional perspective.
