Amelia: Public Health

Amelia completed an internship with USU Extension as a Public Health Promotion Intern during the Spring 2021 semester. Here is what Amelia has to say about this experience:

I was given so many opportunities to work on amazing projects. My supervisors have been amazing in supporting me and giving me responsibilities. I found this internship online.

What did you unexpectedly learn?

I learned how to ask the right question. I learned how to jump into projects and to just try my best, even when I didn't have any background in the project field.

Would you recommend this internship to others?

Absolutely. USU Extension is an amazing organization. They do push you, but they give you lots of support. I think that this internship helped me realize that I can write and do research effectively and that I want to continue with my education, just like my supervisors!
