  1. Rephael,
    I’m glad that you were able to pivot and take on this research-driven internship. Thanks for your presentation and best wishes in your future endeavors.

  2. Rephael,
    It was great to hear that this experience gave you new insights into your service as a Health Coach, and connected areas of academic and personal interests for you. Thank you for sharing your experiences, and best wishes!

    1. Thanks so much for your guidance in the Health Coach Program Dr. Boes, it’s all thanks to you.

  3. Interesting project Rephael! This is an interesting project and it sounds like you really built some great skills in working with a partner. Did this experience shape your approach to research and your IS this year?

    1. My summer experience really showed me the importance of question formulation in a research setting. It taught me how to ask and plan questions in ways that leave room for adapting to the unexpected results that show up along the way. Almost trying to expect the unexpected!

      This has definitely been very significant to how I planned out my IS, as I have been formulating questions in areas where I gain the technical expertise as I go. Sometimes things don’t shake out as anticipated, but adaptability is key.

  4. Rephael – I know you were disappointed when your first option for a summer internship fell through, but you pivoted so smoothly to this, it almost seems as if it were what you intended to do all along. so glad you got a lot out of it, were able to contribute like you did, and combined your interests and previous experiences. Congratulations!
