I’m so excited to say that I will be staying on the Indiana INTERNnet team through the fall! With the summer coming to an end, I was more and more sad with each passing day that I would have to leave this amazing team that I have been able to work with. When I was asked to stay on through the fall, I was ecstatic and so proud of myself.
I’m so thankful for this opportunity to continue to grow and learn with Indiana INTERNnet. I know that this summer I’ve learned so much, but there’s still so much for me to learn. I love growing and learning in this environment and can’t wait to see what the fall will hold.
To everyone that read my posts or watched my video’s for Indiana INTERNnet’s YouTube channel, thank you. I’m so excited to continue creating content for interns all around Indiana.

Last week Indiana INTERNnet hosted the final Summer Engagement Event of the summer at the Indiana State Fair. The event allowed interns from all over the state to come and network while enjoying an iconic Indiana event. It was a day full of networking, prizes, games, and a lot of fun.
