“Working at a local small business allowed me to experience work as a vital member of the team rather than just a coffee-fetching intern at a large institution. This provided valuable experience for me and I proved to myself that I could be an important member of a workforce. This feeling was further bolstered by the fact that the projects I worked on directly led to the store’s marketing strategy. Knowing that I was making a difference for a small business really made me feel empowered and ready to take on future challenges.”
