Hear From Our StudentI had an amazing Puentes internship that saw me bring a product from concept to launch. I had the opportunity to meet and work with individuals from Argentina, Brazil, Costa Rica, China, France, and Bangladesh: it was a truly international experience. The work was substantive, challenging, and most importantly of all, fun. I know that the lessons learned from my Puentes experiences have made me a far better working professional. I could not have asked for more from my Puentes internship. — Nick B., Project Management Intern, Princeton University
