Working with such a great team and collaborating ideas! We did a super fun collaborative video and have another one in the works but, communicating with other college students with the same goals and interests, all around the country has been so fun.

Learning experience

Feedback from peers is so important and helps allow you to rethink situations. There has been so many times where my ideas have been improved just because I was able to share them with my team and get feedback on my work.

What advice would you give?

Use all the resources given through Iowa State because they really do help! I found my internship through CyHire and it worked out great for me.
