Q: Tell us a bit about your time on virtual Project Belize.

A: I was an intern in the San Jose, CA office and there were five of us from our office who worked on a supply drive where we sent supplies down to schools in Belize. We were able to collect a lot of books, mainly for kindergarten through fourth grade. We worked with the recruiting staff and then sent out emails to the entire office asking for people to donate books. We ended up collecting 300-400 books and it was great to help those in need.

Q: It sounds like there is a great group of people in your office who were willing to help.

A: From everyone within my start class all the way up to the partners and principals, the people I work with at PwC are great. They are people I feel I can talk to. I make sure to take time out of my day to talk to people and make connections.

Q: So tell us about some of the diverse projects you’ve been working on.

A: The work that I’ve done is so diverse that I get the opportunity to work with many people on various projects. It’s great getting to work with people from the PwC side as well as the client side. I talk to friends who work at other jobs and it sounds like they do the same thing day after day. That wouldn’t work for me.
