She's gained confidence and learned to take risks. "It can be hard to juggle internships, class work, extracurriculars, and working to support myself, while still trying to enjoy the college experience," she says.

His goal was to assess the resources, capabilities and needs there in order to advise NC State's Office of International Affairs on whether or how to proceed in developing these international partnerships.
