My time as an MWMO intern solidified my direction of study, which is in water resource management. I gained a diverse skill set and expanded my knowledge base about everything water-related. I feel that this internship was the best thing that I could have done for my future career goals. I am confident in my studies, and bring all the experiences I had at MWMO with me wherever I go.
