Internship, Chicago, IL - January 8, 2017
Interning at John G. Shedd Aquarium was the best thing I've done so far in my life and a great achievement. It was hard work and worked long hours but at the end of the day, seeing those animals being taken care of in the best way always put a smile on my face. It's not just about "playing" with animals, everyone makes sure that they are being fed the correct amount of food, making sure they are being challenged and that there habitat is as it would be out in the wild. Having a small team makes it harder for everyone but we all put in our part and went above and beyond to exceed the expectations. The management team was really understanding and always made sure we as interns were okay and if we understood our schedules. I hope to have more opportunities as I did at Shedd Aquarium.
