STEP Signature Project: Education Abroad/Internship

Favorite Aspect of STEP Experience: My favorite aspect about the STEP experience was being able to narrow down my interests and what I wanted to achieve from my signature project through my meetings with my cohort and my advisor. Without STEP, I would not have been able to get the experience of working first hand alongside a Member of Parliament in Canada adn gained the knowledge that I did while I was there. It gave me the tools to be able to pull the most out of the experience. I am always willing to share my STEP experience with others since I truly feel it is one of the best programs we have to offer at this university since it allows such a wide range of things to be accomplished within it.
