On the whole I have had a very good internship experience at Feldman Architecture. I have to say, at first I thought my tasks as an intern would be limited to serving coffee or cleaning up the materials library. However, the office scheduled different tasks for me each day, and also tried to make me work with many different people on staff, really pushing me out of my comfort zone. I was pleased to note that the projects I worked on and kept up with were all interesting and rewarding.

As an international student, English is my second language. Sometimes it is hard for me to speak out during meetings or when I have a question. However, everyone in this firm is so nice and friendly. They are always so patient with me and answer all my questions. It makes me feel like this team is more like a family.

I feel so grateful to have had a chance to be part of the team, even for just two months. I want to say thank you to everyone, especially Steven. From working with you I learned a lot of things which cannot be learned in school. And thank you to Evan, Liza, and Serena, for being my mentors and friends, and for making my internship experience so much more wonderful.

It has been a great honor to meet you guys and I hope I can see you all soon.
