As I stand at the threshold of a new chapter, preparing to embark on an internship journey in the bustling city of New York, I find myself reflecting on the past three years of joy, growth, and learning. The experiences, friendships, and lessons gained during my college years have shaped me in profound ways, yet I am filled with a broader excitement to step into the unknown and return with a fresh perspective that bridges my past with future aspirations.

The past three years have been a tapestry woven with moments of joy, discovery, and personal growth. From late-night study sessions filled with laughter to spontaneous adventures exploring the beauty of our campus and the surrounding community, I have cherished every experience that college life has offered. These memories are not just fleeting moments but treasures that have enriched my journey and shaped my worldview.

Through my research in economics, meaningful communities, and I have cultivated valuable skills and insights. I've learned the importance of resilience in the face of adversity, the power of collaboration in achieving shared goals, and the significance of empathy in building meaningful connections. Each lesson learned has contributed to my personal and intellectual growth, preparing me for the opportunities that lie ahead.

As I prepare to venture into the vibrant landscape of New York City for my internship, there's a palpable sense of anticipation and excitement. The prospect of immersing myself in a new environment, navigating professional responsibilities, and experiencing the cultural richness of a bustling metropolis fills me with curiosity and enthusiasm. I embrace the unknown with open arms, eager to step beyond familiar boundaries and embrace the challenges and discoveries that await.

While I embark on this new adventure, I carry with me the lessons, values, and experiences accumulated over the past three years. These form the foundation upon which I build my aspirations and shape my future endeavors. I view this internship as a bridge between my past achievements and future aspirations, a transformative journey that integrates past learnings with newfound experiences.

In embracing the journey ahead, I recognize the importance of self-care, balance, and mindfulness. While the excitement of new experiences fuels my enthusiasm, I am mindful of nurturing my well-being, maintaining connections with loved ones, and staying grounded amidst the whirlwind of change. It's a holistic approach that ensures not only professional success but also personal fulfillment and growth. Dartmouth College is a place not defined by its brand, name, or even institutional existence—it is defined by the community and people within it. It is this fact that allows me to enjoy attending this school and gain so much value from doing so
