Interview with Peter's Internship Sponsor

Personally, I'm a big fan of internships. As a student myself, in my junior year, I had taken a semester of Japanese and there was a little poster on the wall about an internship available through the San Diego and Yokohama sister-city relationship. … It really changed the course of my life.

Interview with Peter's Internship Sponsor

It's a quite diverse group. They are always excited and very eager to work. It is a really good energy for the entire team. Of course, it depends on the student. They have different styles. Some are very passionate and eager. I really enjoy working with them.
