    "My main project has been dealing with unengaged emails.

The app was developed for Android/iOS and we presented it to over 50 people. Then, I was offered an Advance Internship over the spring to support, update, and get the app ready for production. All this gave me the opportunity to develop a real product, gain around 1 year of work experience, and get a job offer before my graduation."
