London: Work hard, Play hard Past Review

By (Math, Western Washington University) for

Internships in London

What did you gain/learn from your experience abroad? Was it worthwhile?
My internship abroad experience was more than worthwhile, there are things I learned abroad that I could not have learned in a classroom or where I was before the internship. I feel like I grew a lot and learned a lot of new things about myself. It's an eye-opening and extremely enriching experience.
