On Thursday, April 10, I was given the opportunity to present my internship here at World Trade Center Harrisburg as part of the "International Internship Corner" at Lebanon Valley College's Inquiry 2014. Inquiry is a symposium dedicated to celebrating the scholarly, scientific, and creative achievements of LVC students. There were several intriguing presentations of scientific experiments, psychological studies, and even a student run record label business to name a few. However, the "International Internship Corner" was unique in that it brought together three students with international business-based internships to present such possibilities to their peers. I was fortunate to be presenting with former WTC Harrisburg Intern Cody Richard (currently with Assistive Technology Products) and current World Affairs Council of Harrisburg Intern Christian Eisenhour. Together, we created a display booth to best integrate our respective internships as one presentation.

We spoke with several curious visitors throughout the evening, including a few students who were interested in succeeding us in our positions. Each of us happily informed the visitors of our job responsibilities and accomplishments. I shared several of the "Member Spotlights" that I developed, which can be found on WTC Harrisburg's website. I also discussed some of the cultural reports, trade leads, events, and market research such as the Harrisburg International Airport Travel Survey that I have worked on during my time as an intern. Overall, it was a very successful and rewarding night to display what I have learned through my internship as it comes to a close.
