"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."
Germaine Lau, former Executive Assistant Intern
