Well, the summer 2021 SPS internship program has come to a close. The past 10 weeks have felt as if they flew by! This week was full of sentimental reflection and goodbyes as I finished my last few projects and thought about my goals for this opportunity.
It’s really hard to believe my time as a SPS intern is over. This past week was jammed packed with final preparations, practice, last minute documentation, and final meetings. I’m truly sad to see my internship come to a close, but all good things must end.
This week, I spent my time finalizing my work at APS and getting the products of my work published on the APS website. Throughout my internship, I made a lot of tough decisions, experienced the implications and consequences of those decision, and learned a lot.
Today was the closing symposium. I remember two weeks ago I was shocked that our abstracts were due. The next week, I was surprised we had to have our presentations in. This was the fasted summer of my life, and maybe one of the most pivotal.
