I am currently writing this from my grandparents' house in Texas, so yee-haw, howdy, etc!
This summer spent at D.C. has been one to never forget. I met so many great people with similar interests to mine, not only the other SPS interns. Frequent trips to the gym left me with a few good friends I hope to keep in contact with in the future. The contacts I made at NASA will carry with me throughout my career in physics, and I hope to use the new connections for opportunities after my undergrad experience.
The dorms that the program housed us into were incredible as well. George Washington University was a great environment for someone like myself. Everyone was open to conversation, so I was able to meet new people almost every day. The dorms served as a place of relaxation for myself and the other interns, and when we were not busy working or going out to have fun we always enjoyed each other's company. I will always remember the good times spent in room 502. If I wasn't busy trying to level up on Rocket League, we were watching movies, YouTube videos, or playing games together. I think SPS did a great job of bringing together people who got along so well.
I leave the program with great experiences from what I learned at NASA, SPS events, and from the other people I met this summer. I want to thank SPS, NASA, and my mentors for an incredible summer. I look forward to my last year of college and I hope to make something of my life with what I've gained this year!
