My favorite part of the summer program were my peers. All the people in my group were so active and friendly in our conversations, creating a bond that is rare to achieve especially in a virtual setting. Our teachers often assigned us into breakout rooms where I got the chance to meet and collaborate with a network of international students whether it'd be writing out a full storyline or just getting to know each other.
