“I wanted to say a big thank you for these past few months. I have so enjoyed the opportunity to work closely with you and to learn so much from you. I am sure that I will be reflecting on and using the knowledge I have gained for years to come. Thank you for taking the time to teach me and for giving me so many different responsibilities. It was the best possible internship experience I could have envisioned in such strange times. I am eager to see how all of these projects, workshops, festivals, and more come to fruition…”
