What I liked
During my internship at Banyan Global, I learned a more-than-impressive amount about international development, USAID, gender and youth development, economic empowerment, conducted research and wrote memos to contribute to major development projects globally. I also attended events around D.C., was sponsored to participate in a 3-day leadership summit, and moderated a panel on International Youth Day. At the end of the internship, I created a 30-page research project/toolkit for programming implementation. Overall, I gained tangible experience that will prove greatly beneficial. My supervisors were supportive and made sure I thoroughly understood each assignment.
