" I am Anjali Patel, student pursuing a bachelor's degree in Computer Science with a minor in business administration from the California State University of Fullerton.
I am a second-year student, and like other students, I applied for internships at various companies. My goal was to gain more experience in my minor, along with my major if possible. Luckily, I got a chance to do an internship at Little Hope Foundation.
We were working under the supervision of Gina Rogoto, operations manager of A Little Hope Foundation. She is a very enthusiastic person and motivated us continuously. I was given the task to work on the scholarship applications and take on a research project.
Coming into this internship, I lacked confidence about what I could do and what I am good at.
I also faced some obstacles with the research project and there were times where my search results were contrary to what I needed to research. However, with the constant support and motivation from my mentor, Gina, I was able to reach good results in my different assignments.
This internship has given me a much better understanding of my skill set and where my career may take me in the future." -- Anjali Patel.
