What has been your favorite part of the Millennium summer internship?
My favorite part of the internship has been my ability to meet so many interesting and different people at the firm. Everyone is approachable and willing to talk about their experiences, agenda for the day, or simply life in general. The speaker series events have also been a great way to learn about the Firm and the world of finance.
What are some of your hobbies?
I love playing hockey, singing and playing the piano.
Where’s your go-to lunch spot near the office?
I enjoy grabbing meals at St James’ Square with my fellow colleagues.
I was drawn to Millennium, because it is a leader in its field. I felt like the Firm would provide me with invaluable experience as a growing individual. As interns, we get the chance to work directly with industry experts, gain first-hand experience on projects, and absorb so much information every day. I was also very impressed by Millennium’s focus on diversity, such as its Women of Millennium Network (WOMN) employee resource group.
