Please meet today’s Featured Fellow, Makayla Lester!
Makayla Lester is a rising senior at UNCG studying Information Systems Management with a minor in Psychology. Originally from Stoneville, NC, Makayla enjoys baking and decorating cakes in her free time. This summer, Makayla will join United Guaranty Corporation as the IT Communications & Talent Relations intern.
Makayla shares about her internship experience thus far: My internship at United Guaranty has been one of the most insightful and rewarding experiences of my college career. I have been an intern for a month now and I have nothing but great things to say about the company and the wisdom my colleagues are sharing on a day-to-day basis. I am currently working on a few projects in the Talent Relations department that open my eyes to all the different types of careers inside Information Technology. When I began this internship, I had no idea what my future endeavors would be after college. However, through persistent work ethic and observant coworkers, I have been given the opportunity to shadow the Business Analysts department as a fitting future career. In short, this internship has provided deep insight into personal goals and achievements and future career options.
