Project Goal & Overview
Mailys sm
For my internship, I worked on graphic design content for the Foundation, including a pictogram and branding content for the upcoming Symposium. Over the next few weeks, I plan to create a motion design video about the Foundation’s impact. I am also working on another project with Cyril Lafon to create a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC). This is a big project that will launch in September. We recorded 12 physicians and researchers who work in therapeutic ultrasound to increase awareness about the field.

Share some thoughts on your experience as a Foundation intern.
I was really happy to work at the Foundation. It was an expatriate experience for me, and I really enjoyed understanding what was needed as graphic design content to help tell the Foundation’s story, and to explain its goals.

Has your internship affected your career plans?
Yes, I’m sure I want to work abroad. I really like the American working way, and it’s good to work for something that can help people in the world. It has more meaning.
