“The advice that I would give other interns is to come on this program with an open mind. Definitely try new things and explore the city, and come to every organized event. I've met amazing people and it's really nice to know you have a support network when you're in a different country.“Lexi Macdonald & Ashley Duguay University of British Columbia & St. Mary's University
