Exceptional. I felt supported and encouraged to grow professionally and walked away achieving the goals I set out to accomplish.
Besides from the knowledge and professional experience I gained, just being submerged into African culture was the highlight of my internship.
My internship with the African Impact Foundation was a defining moment in my career where I took on new challenges, found my purpose, and created memories beyond my expectations.
