"As a Lead Intern for the Midtown Project, I expanded my leadership skills into the business management world by shepherding relations with Eckerd students and small business owners in St. Petersburg-an experience I will be able bring into any professional situation. As an Environmental Studies major, I have had little classroom training about business management, however this opportunity gave me so much insight into efficiency, organization, administration, and general people skills.
