Why were you initially interested in working for the Foundation?
I wanted to participate in a medical-related internship.

Share some thoughts on your experience as a Foundation intern.
I have truly learned so much while I was here. Also, everybody is really nice and welcoming!

How has your internship affected your career plans?
I’m more interested in research than I was before.

What are your upcoming plans? What is your dream job?
I am entering into my senior year of high school this year and in five years I will have graduated from college and hopefully be accepted into medical school. Probably an anesthesiologist, cardiologist, or radiologist.
