Marya is currently a Senior at the University of Connecticut and is studying English and Communications. She hopes to own her own business in the future and possibly run for government office. As the creator of this blog, she spent copious amounts of time creating this site in order to gain prestige for this internship and to advertise the skills of the past, present, and future interns. Marya believes that this internship has been the most valuable to adding to her skill set thus far and the most applicable to everyday life success.
“This internship taught me how to succeed not only in business or in politics, but also in everyday life. I observed the leadership styles of the council members and the Mayor and learned that transparency is always the best practice in government and in life when leading a team of contributors.”
