Summary


The summer I spent with General Motors was full of learning and teaching moments. I was provided with the tools necessary to learn. My project was based on skills that I did not have, but, was able to obtain throughout a series of trainings provided by the company. I was also given the opportunity to work on community service and enrich the youth from local elementary and middle schools on manufacturing engineering activities throughout a series of workshops. I was also lucky enough to go on tours of other General Motors locations and manufacturers. My favorite part was getting to interact with other interns in student catered events such as baseball games, go kart racing, and project expo alongside my roommates. Overall it was a really fun experience! 10/10 would do it again.
