“With it being my first internship, there were a lot of things that I had to learn," shares Russell De Vera. "My mentor did an amazing job at explaining processes and showing me how things worked. My manager was also very supportive of me, answering all of my questions and giving me constructive feedback during my internship. Thanks to their support and the guidance of incredible engineers during my internship, I learned way more than I ever imagined.”
