As I sit down to write this blog post I’m shocked at how quickly the term has flown by. I know ten week terms tend to go by quickly, but none have compared to the speediness of this one. It’s crazy to think that I will be picking up my roots that I’ve planted in Oregon for the past three years and be moving back to my home-state of California.
Not only has my time interning in Portland allowed me to grow and strengthen my communication skills, but it has also provided me with new, meaningful experiences and relationships. I’ve been able to explore new parts of the state of Oregon and make life-long friends with roommates that I surprisingly found on Craiglist.
As my internship and time at the University of Oregon come to a bittersweet end, I am grateful that I chose to participate in the Portland Senior Experience.
Thanks to Josh Netzer, my cohort, and all of my co-workers this term has been better than I ever imagined it could be. I am leaving Portland a confident and well-rounded PR professional that’s ready to conquer, as people like to say, the “real world”.
