My name is Mike Fulton. I am a rising senior at Western New England University in Springfield, MA, majoring in information technology. I have been visually impaired since birth, and I have had a black lab guide dog named Daquiri from Guiding Eyes for the Blind for 2 years. I wanted to write about my experience in Boston this summer to tell my story and give advice to future interns.

Summer internships tend to be what you make of them. Sometimes you are buried in work and other times you have nothing to do. This summer at State Street was a success for several reasons. First, I had many opportunities to network. There have been several events throughout the summer geared towards expanding the knowledge of the interns and providing us with resources to succeed in our careers. Taking advantage of these events is vital. The events promote different and unique skills that are of great value. Second, is the experience that I have gained while working. Although the summer started off slowly, every week it has progressed and I have been given more responsibility and projects. Each time I am presented with a task, I tackle it head on and find a way to succeed even if it is difficult. The last reason is the opportunities this internship has provided. State Street is a prestigious bank that is an industry leader, and taking advantage of everything it has to offer is an enormous part of the internship.
