We’re back with another edition of Internship Corner! Here you can catch up with our students and their various internship assignments. These interviews are contributed by Cooke intern Megan Maldonado. In each feature we will share our students internship experiences, in their own words. We’ll highlight their accomplishments and learn about the impact their internships have had on their confidence, abilities and gaining independence as young adults.
