"I worked as a research assistant to develop a website for their department of communication and disorders. They were really helpful to me and provided me with every resource I asked for and gave me the flexibility of time to work on my time and my pace. They had very specific requirement and they pushed me to my limit to achieve those requirements and at the end I feel that I learned a lot by pushing myself to the limit."
