"My internship has been a great opportunity for growth. Not only did I learn a lot about the business side of athletics but I also experienced a great deal of growth during my internship. During this time i received a big promotion and a substantial raise at the Forth Worth Club. In addition to this, because of the hard work I put in during the internship I received an incredible job offer as a financial adviser. It is not the career path that I had planned on going down but I was always told to utilize the resources you have at your disposal and this was just too good of an opportunity to pass up. Overall this internship has been as good of an experience as any I have had throughout my years in college."

"It's a great honor to be exposed to the world of internship. I was particularly motivated to be involved with Safe Haven Organization. This is mainly because their discharge of duty towards the less privilege members of the public is primarily appealing to my missionary zeal and passion. My relationship and interaction with the staff and employees of Safe Haven was very productive and rewarding. The collection of my final project has been successful, though challenging. The knowledge and experience I gained so far has greatly served as an opener for me and also prepared me for the challenges ahead."
