I have gained so much experience from this internship already. I would say my greatest accomplishment so far is that I have learned how to use Eventbrite and Emma. These are two online websites that CIRAS uses to market their events and have attendees register.

What advice would you give?

My advice for future students is to make the best of any internship you get even if it isn't the exact one you wanted. My other advice for students is to always ask questions.
