"The Japan Internship proved to be an excellent opportunity for me to build on my professional repertoire, as well as experience one of Earth's most incredible places. Although the intensive and challenging nature of the internship pushed me to my limits, the experience has molded me into a richer individual. As a whole, this internship has been an invaluable and memorable experience, and I'm confident that the program will continue to emulate a similar experience for future students." - Past participant
