 I did an internship at NJAHS for five weeks. Before coming here, I was not excited enough to do internship at NPO because my hope was to do internship at business company. However, this internship gave me lots of challenging tasks, which made my internship more satisfying.

 The most interesting and toughest task I did was creating a presentation at university. I learned about how to make presentations at my university in Japan though this was my first time to make presentation in front of native english speakers. I tried to think about what they will be interested in through our presentation to make sure they will listen to it. When we did our presentation, most of the audience listened intently. Also I was able to make them laugh during my presentation. I was really satisfied with the results.

 During internship here, the most interesting and meaningful things that I learned was human relationship. Based on my friend's story, when you work at business situation, most of your task will be based on computer. However, at NPO, our work will be fundamentally based on human relationships.  I had lots of opportunities to talk with many diverse people, for example, professor, university students, photographer and senior citizen. I found it really interesting to communicate with people and I hope I can get a job where I can meet many kinds of people.

In the end, I can definitely say this internship influenced my future career. I would like to say thank you to all the people who helped me doing internship, including my supervisor Rachel and boss Rosalyn.
