Kelly J. Murguia - Entry 5

What is the most valuable lesson you learned during your internship?

I have recognized that time is mostly intangible and fleeting. It is said to be one of the most valuable things an individual can spend. Time is of the essence, so prioritize, prepare and take pleasure in what you do.

I have learned that passion shines through in the strength of your presence, the caliber of your work and thoroughness of your thoughts. If you do something, do it well. Whether it be drafting constituent letters to networking at social events, applying yourself 110 percent will set you on the right track to a positive and successful future. Even when I felt uncomfortable, challenged or offended, I recognized why that was and learned even more about myself.

I would like to thank my family for the strength and encouragement they have provided me, not only in my time away from home, but throughout my life. I love you all!

Thank you CHCI Staff for your patience and guidance. Not a day goes by where we don't recognize the work you put in to this Institute.

Please summarize your internship experience in one word. [R]evolution.
