Hometown: Altanta, GA

Summer Mentorship Experience Summer 2011, Pune, India
Organization: Virgo Engineers 


What I did: This past summer I worked at Virgo Engineers in Pune, India, where I had the incredible experience of being immersed in a culture completely foreign to my own.  At Virgo, I worked with Robert (a fellow SME) to develop a system to help with the prioritization and processing of the large volume of orders Virgo receives, and through the experience we were able to gain experience with many different levels of operation within the organization.  The greatest lesson I learned from this experience was how to collaborate with people with different backgrounds and work styles.
