I loved my project and the people that I worked with.

What I wish was different

Advice

"Closed mouths don't get fed." Meaning, if you want something, --whether it's shadowing in a different department, one-on-one time with your managers, more daily tasks-- ask for it. You get out what you out into your internship and your managers will love to see initiative.

I loved how exciting it was to work on an innovative product with a team of experts. I learned so much about product design and working on something that has never been previously achieved.

I wish my project was determined earlier in the summer so I could have completed it before leaving.

Advice

Get to know the team and don't be afraid to ask for help. All the engineers I met were not only willing to help, they were excited and motivated.
