    Thank you so much for the opportunity to intern here at Inspiron. I am convinced that I would not have learned as much as I have in the last few weeks if it hadn't been for these opportunities, especially the helpline project. As I finish my degree and prepare to enter the workforce, I'd like to stay in contact and be informed about all of Inspiron's future endeavors. Thanks again for this incredible internship, and I wish you and the team all the best

    It was a wholesome experience with an exposure and understanding about the practicality of the field. It was helping me understand how to apply the theoretical concepts we have learnt so far into real life experiences. Though it was an online exposure, it still didn't hamper the quality of learning process.
