Summer in Chi-Town

I can’t believe how quickly the summer has passed by! I was lucky enough to spend ten weeks in Chicago interning for The Ball Foundation and loved every minute of it. The organization focuses on public school district transformation and I spent my internship developing potential business models for their long-term strategy planning. It was everything I wanted in an internship: a nonprofit consulting position in which I could apply smart business strategy while also making a difference in the community.

 

Aside from the internship, I fell in love with the Windy City. Of course, many say that the true test of love is when winter hits, but lucky for me, I was only there until August. There is definitely no excuse to be bored in Chicago during the summer. With street festivals, Lake Michigan, Cubs games, and museums, I never had a dull weekend. Not to mention, Chicago’s renowned restaurants that have left me buying bigger pants this semester. Oh well, every deep dish pizza was worth it!
