To Expect or Not to Expect

My internship at the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was an eye-opening experience. From learning that the government is not always a suited-booted environment as I had expected, to navigating through departments to create an independent project of my own for the agency, and facing the bureaucratic nature of government work – I faced different challenges. But each challenge, though difficult to overcome, brought me closer to realizing my own potentials.
