As each day passes, and I get closer and closer to my first day, the anticipation of starting something as grand as an internship has me feeling mixed emotions. Will this be a great experience and lead me to something great? Or will this be a learning experience that teaches me that this isn’t what I want to do? Only time will tell and all the adventures that come with this new job.

The process of coming on board has been long and painstaking due to complications and distance from my doctor, but this minor offset has not deterred my excitement and ambition to finally start and fully learn and experience what is being offered. While my start may be a little late, I will still put in the time needed and do it with a smile and confidence. Though this is something new to me, and there will always be those first day jitters and the feeling of anxiety that comes along with them, I can’t wait to get my hands dirty with real work and finally learn if this is something I could do for the rest of my life.
