“Throughout my time in the Global Education Alumni Internship, I have been continuously reminded of the program’s impact and the spark it lights in young future leaders. I have grown professionally in many ways. I am more organized, I write more structured and professional emails, I am better at asking for help. Personally, I have been inspired by the many stories I have heard, the many tips I have received, the advice I have been given, and I have been moved to be more grateful and intentional.“

Aileen Flores, Former Global Glimpse Alumni Intern

“The Global Education Alumni Internship allows alumni to learn about a different side to Global Glimpse. I enjoyed the work environment and how inclusive everyone was. I feel like I learned the importance of networking and maintaining a good relationship with people I work with (whether in college or in the professional environment). I also learned to effectively communicate with others, and adapt to different situations.“

Yumei Huang, Former Global Glimpse Alumni Intern

“This entire experience reaffirmed my passion to work with an organization/company that works diligently to create a work environment that values inclusion, diversity, and the well-being of its team. I felt that the connections I made with staff members are life-long and these individuals will always be part of my network. This is not a feeling I had really experienced in a previous internship. Also, I gained new skills and experiences that will be amazing to add to my resume and will make for great points of conversation with future recruiters.”

Devyn Lopez, Former Global Glimpse Alumni Intern

“I got a lot more out of it than expected. In the beginning, I thought the internship would be like any other job, but by the end, I got a lot of career and emotional support. Personally, I made a lot of connections and learned new things to look for in a company. Professionally, I got a taste of many business functions and terminology. If you become this year’s intern, remember you are only there for a short amount of time, so learn as such as you can about the company, talk to as many people as you can, and say yes to opportunities and projects even if you have never done anything similar before.”

Samara Smith, Former Global Glimpse Alumni Intern

“My internship with Global Glimpse was an extremely rewarding experience. From working with the wonderful staff to partaking in many interesting projects, I am grateful to have had the opportunity to be a Global Education Intern. I’ve also improved my communication, editing, and research skills which have been valuable to my current positions. Most of all, I left this internship with a deeper appreciation of Global Glimpse and the hard work the team has put into making this program a success.”

Anderson Alleyne, Former Global Glimpse Alumni Intern
