My greatest accomplishment during this internship was developing skills and experience working with clients. I also felt accomplished by being able to take a client through the entire lan process and even being able to offer them financial coaching.

What advice would you give?

My advice to future students for any internship, is to take detailed notes for your first week. It helps to be able to look back at your notes for small details, so that you don't have to keep asking the same questions.
