I enjoyed working with the other interns, learning more about the organization's mission, having lunch with countless senior leaders, managing a project for all of the other interns, completing a few research projects, and contributing to my team's work. I really liked the leadership and the Christian conviction of the organization. I really respected IJM's excellent operations and stewardship afterward.
