"My time participating in the GANAS internship program provided me with an excellent opportunity to explore my field of interest. The GANAS team working in conjunction with my internship mentor ensured a positive and equitable internship site experience. Along with the technical skills learned at the site, the program fostered valuable professional growth lessons, including leadership and constructive communication ideas. Overall, the program has given me a great foundation for my career that bestows me with confidence as I plan for life past my undergrad.”
