 Intern Spotlight  

This month we are shining the spotlight on Matthew Griff, a BroadFutures Summer 2018 intern.  After graduating from the University of Maryland Baltimore County with a B.S. in Mathematics, Matthew was excited to join BroadFutures to gain more experience in his field.  He interned with The American Psychological Association (APA) in the Finance Department, where he gained critical workplace experience and was provided a  supportive environment to expand upon his professional communication skills. Matthew was excited to have the opportunity to use his skills in mathematics to help contribute to the organization. Matthew’s dedication and industrious nature proved a great asset in his internship. After completing the BroadFutures program , Matthew began a Master’s degree program in Data Science at UMBC.  When reflecting on his internship experience, Matthew reported that “ BroadFutures helped me regain my confidence.

We cannot ask for any greater praise. Thank you, Matthew, and we wish you the best of luck in graduate school!!
