Did any of your extracurricular activities have a particularly big impact on your experience?
The culture clubs were a place for me to find a home and get to know people who share some of the same cultures as you, and even if they don’t’ share the same culture they appreciate your culture. From an internship perspective, I’ve learned some skills and they help with interviews.
