"When I first heard about this internship I knew it was something that I was going to love. As an accounting major, it was way out of my field of study but I ended up learning that I really enjoy community development work and now think I will look for a carreer that can use my accounting skills in a community development context. If you have a summer to spare I highly reccomend this internship. The people are fantastic, the kids are so much fun, the organization is doing some legit work, and you will go on countless adventures during your time here. Best summer of my life!"
