"Through my Praxis III I learned to really look at situations from multiple angles."

"(T)he most valuable experience I've had has been meeting women in all stages of their lives and careers who have made themselves available to me as career, educational and personal resources. Their generosity, openness and willingness to advise and work with me to plan my future has been incredible, and I hope to continue the relationships I've made here after my internship ends. (T)his internship has allowed me to see some of what I've learned at Bryn Mawr be put into practice."
