Advice

What advice do you have for potential CWP participants? Current CWP participants?

Keep pushing yourself, even when you are not seeing success right away.

Many college students struggle to choose between an internship specific to their target industry or doing CWP. What advice would you give them on this subject if they wanted to enter your career field?

If you feel that this won't effect your career in any way, do not take the internship. You will be wasting a lot of your time and others. Pursue this only if you truly believe it will help you in the long run.

What's your best advice for someone interested in entering your career field?

Being able to have perseverance. You are dealing with the most unreliable product, which is people. There will be many obstacles you will have to jump. Its the ability you have to keep moving forward after those obstacles

What's your favorite memory from CWP?

The whole trip at Windsor, Canada.

Last words of wisdom

Work hard, play harder.
