"When ‘incredible’ doesn’t even begin to sum up your internship experience, what else is there to say? That’s how I’m feeling right now as I start to come to terms with the fact that my time here in Seattle is coming to a close. WONGDOODY, the agency where I have been spending my MAIP experience, has treated me better than I could have ever hoped for. I was welcomed with open arms and immediately encouraged to dive in and work on important projects for some of their top clients. In a million years, I never would’ve imagined that they would allow me to participate in the business and culture of the agency to the degree that they have. I’ve never personally experienced what an internship in another field of business is like, but I feel as though most typical interns wouldn’t be able to say the same. 

For this incredible experience – and for giving me a real chance to have the career I have always imagined – I am completely indebted to MAIP. Without this program, the odds of me ever making it out to Seattle to meet the amazing people at WONGDOODY are slim to none; the odds of me being set up as well as I will be to enter the advertising world once I graduate with my M.B.A in the spring would be even slimmer. In my mind, I will undoubtedly owe whatever career I have that comes out of this experience to the entire 4A’s organization and the MAIP program. From the bottom of my heart, thank you for allowing me to be a part of this."
