My greatest accomplishment was just finding this internship, to begin with due to the pandemic. The relationships I made, and the memories I now have were all worth it and I could not be more grateful to have had this opportunity.

Learning experience

Learning how to be in this industry under these circumstances has prepared me for how to handle living with restrictions and how to be successful as an Event Planner.

What advice would you give?

Don't give up on finding your dream internship and don't let the fact that it's unpaid steer you away. The experience you can gain is something that is better than a payment.
