"Many thanks to Illuminate Universe and Deloitte Canada for the opportunity to participate in the 2019 National High School Business Conference in Ottawa as a Business Development Intern. The position allowed me to sharpen the business skills I have developed during high school, and prepare me as I enter the Rotman Commerce program at the University of Toronto this fall. The internship has helped me to develop my leadership skills and provided me with unique insights into the business world. I am grateful for the confidence in me demonstrated by Illuminate and Deloitte, and all the support and guidance provided to help me succeed. Deloitte and Illuminate advisors were generous with their time and expertise and their mentorship was invaluable throughout the internship. This position has enhanced my teamwork, leadership, and problem-solving abilities while also helping me to better understand the business world, and to set myself up for success."
"As an operational management intern for Illuminate Universe, I had the unique opportunity to engage with outstanding high school students, recruit university mentors and collaborate with the team of national leads to successfully run the National High School Business Conference in Ottawa. Illuminate Universe invigorated a positive, dynamic and inspiring work environment that allowed the interns to flourish in the execution of the conference. My internship experience at Illuminate Universe was both rewarding and meaningful since I gained a holistic understanding of business operations; an area that I am passionate about and interested in pursuing at a professional level. An aspect of my internship that I found truly unique was the opportunity to further multilateral communication between the students, national leads and affiliated partners. Overall, I am very glad to have been involved in the execution of the conference due to the insight, acumen and inspiration that I developed, and I greatly recommend it to future high school students!"
