What I liked

Absolutely amazing mentorship from Michelle. She was always passionate, keen to detail, and also pushed me and my other teammates to become leaders throughout our work. Despite having a busy schedule, she always kept track of meetings and provided assistance when requested.

What I wish was different

Due to the experience being remote, I would've appreciated the in-person experience. Since the project I was working on, there was no initial outline, but Michelle was good with clarifying what she was looking for in my work.

Advice

Don't be afraid to ask questions early on!
