The [UPOP intern] was not labeled a 'student intern' after day one. She acted with the professionalism, knowledge and dedication of full-time colleagues and consultants. She was very professional, well spoken and held deep conversations around the areas of interest. Several senior leaders thought she was a consultant - not a student. What we offered her was a summer job that was fairly ambiguous and abstract - being a researcher for emerging technologies. She took responsibility to grow that role and took on challenges to make it successful, which helped our entire team move forward.
