Alyshah Aziz graduated Cum Laude with a major in Politics & International Affairs and a minor in Middle East & South Asian Studies. Alyshah served as an Alternative Transportation Intern for six consecutive semesters. She is working as a Business Analyst within Deloitte’s Federal Human Capital Consulting division.
Alyshah’s reflection on the internship: My internship with the Office of Sustainability helped me strengthen my skills in research, writing, marketing, and creativity. My time in the office and my friendships with Dedee, Hannah, Annabel, initiative co-sponsors, and interns are invaluable to me. My biggest takeaway that I will always carry with me is to think critically of what I read, hear, and see. The weekly intern meetings taught me to listen to what I hear and/or see and then investigate. My internship has lead me to view the world and all the activities of humankind from a holistic perspective.

Bridget’s reflection on the internship: My time as an intern with the Office of Sustainability helped to cement my interest in sustainability and environmental studies particularly with a focus on food sustainability. I quickly learned how to approach a professional workplace thanks to the structure of the internship. The strong deadlines and high expectations pushed me to reach goals and produce concise and informative outreach materials. I learned many business skills that I know will help me in the years to come.
