As I will be continuing my internship full time through the summer I have much to learn and experience still. But something I am most proud of from this past spring was my ability to get all of my assigned work done significantly early with accuracy. I was always asking for more work each week to help in anyway I could.

What advice would you give?

Before you want to comment to correct someone on something that you think you know, wait and think about it because you probably don't understand the full picture yet. Remember that you are new and never speak above peers that are above you. Respect the status quo and positions held.
