The Power of a Thank You Note

As my internship ended this week, I contemplated the best way to leave a mark of my appreciation with my managers and coworkers. I came to the decision that I would bake cupcakes and write thank you notes for them. At lunch on my last day, I brought out the cupcakes in little ribbon-wrapped boxes…

Cross-Departmental Internship Lessons

As I look back on my internship experience from this summer, I have noticed a common thread between all of my past internships. With each position, I have taken away important lessons from cross-departmental collaboration. This summer at IMPACT Melanoma was no exception.

Three Ways to Make the Most of Your Commute

One of the things I miss most from Babson is the ability to wake up at 7:45AM to make it to my 8AM because of the 2 minute walk from dorm to classroom.

It All Started as a Side Project

This summer, as I am quickly immersing myself into the tech startup scene here in Philly, I have had the opportunity to meet dozens of founders, leaders, and influencers within this thriving community.  Most directly, through my internship at VeryApt, I have been able to get to know the founders of the company and learn…
