Hello CSS Community: My name is Yannick Alexis and I am currently a sophomore pursuing a Bachelor of Science degree in Fire Protection Engineering. This past summer I had the opportunity to intern at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab (APL). It was a great experience as I was able to expand my horizons by gaining experience in working with server set-up and virtual machine installations.
The Applied Physics Lab’s campus was extremely robust with a variety of activities, learning opportunities, events, and classes which in turn fostered innovation and bonding amongst interns. In fact, I still communicate with my fellow interns to this day. At the beginning of my internship, I was nervous about my ability to complete the tasks delegated to me due to my lack of experience. By the end of the internship, I was more than comfortable completing all tasks. This internship provided me with an immense amount of real world experience. Overall, I would say working at the APL was a great experience where I was able to make connections, grow personally, and grow professionally.
