"I came into UniversalGiving as a shy recent graduate. I soon saw that this internship was like no other-- I worked on high-level projects, I was mentored by the CEO (unheard of!),and I bonded with the grooviest team I have ever come across. The nerves left but the values and experiences will stay."
