Dear LAITS Team,
Today is my last day with LAITS. I can’t believe how quickly a year has passed! I started off with minimal, high school level experience and have grown so much in this program. I’ve gained experience in photo-editing, animating, project management, s p r e a d s h e e t s, and so much more, but more importantly, this program gave me more self-confidence and pride in my work. The positivity and constant support provided by other STAs and our lovely bosses are what make this program so unique. I can’t express how grateful I am that I’ve had this job and got to work with such kind, hardworking, and insanely talented people.
To Suloni, Maddy, and Valerie, thank you for your motivation and kindness. I have never felt so empowered to say exactly how I feel in a workplace. You all are truly the best bosses imaginable, and I know you’ll continue to make LAITS the best workplace ever when I’m gone.
To Abriella, Estella, Angie, and Athena, thanks for keeping the meetings alive. Good luck filling the awkward pauses in meetings without me.
To ALL STAs I’ve worked with, you have all taught me something at some point or another, and for that I am extremely grateful. It is crazy to me how close I have gotten to you all despite never meeting! Hopefully I can make a visit to the office when COVID is gone…haha…if COVID is gone…
Thank you all and stay in touch,
ps. I never knew what Baba meant and at this point I’m too afraid to ask.
