Give us a brief summary of your experience?

It was a wonderful experience, I got to learn all of the ins and outs of the financial technology world. I also managed to make many connections that will be useful for me in the future, as well as friends and role models. It was a large internship program so we had many students from multiple universities and countries. I worked with the enterprise department of Halo, I was able to shadow people whose I might work in the future and experience their day to day lifestyle.
