Tess Bedingfield: The projects that I was able to work on with Gray Panthers were always interesting and forced me to think dynamically and creatively. Throughout the summer I appreciated the expectation that I was able to create finished products on my own, even though some of the issues they addressed were quite complex. Such legitimate responsibility has allowed me to grow as a young professional and I am so grateful that I was given the opportunity to engage in such work in an intern position.

Quinn Stephenson: On a daily basis, my mind was blown with new experiences and some of the most extraordinary people that I have ever met. The ability to meet and interview so many passionate and exciting people was a unique thing about this internship. You were not wrong in claiming that this internship offers experiences like no other. The things I was able to work on with you and the rest of Gray Panthers were valuable and enjoyable.

The experiences that I have had during this internship have not only been personally rewarding, but they have also changed a lot about my world view. I am now much more aware of the incredible amount of time and energy that groups such as Gray Panthers must dedicate in order to even begin to alleviate some of these problems.
