“My internship at a financial services firm gave me experience in a professional setting."

Sophia Lauren Lopez
Campbell High School Graduate, Academy of Business, Agricultural Sciences, and International Baccalaureate

“My business pathway internship gave me perspective on the trust it takes for one to handle such personal information (ie: Social Security Numbers, addresses, financial history, etc.), and I also learned about the significance of finance as a whole. I also got an actual job out of it! It really helped me choose a career path in business after graduation!”
