Why did you decide to apply for an internship with MI?
The family values, which are evident everywhere. You talk to the operator, the CEO, the plant manager - everyone radiates that positive energy of you being a part of the family. MI is a package of knowledge, experience, family, and fun.
Who did you work with?
I worked with a super talented group of people who have
mentored us from the beginning and who were always there when we needed them. Just to name a few: David Villasenor
(CI manager) and Joshua Jonker (technical service manager).
How did you add value to MI?
I think the work I did was really valuable. The work was initiated by my mentors, and I was tasked with coming up with solutions to defect reduction, revenue savings, and customer satisfaction.
What is the most valuable thing you learned?
From a non-technical aspect - whatever knowledge you have in your head is one thing, but implementing that knowledge with all the values the company has been following for many years - that is the most important thing I learned.
What did you enjoy most?
It’s hard to say one thing - talking to the operators, getting to know their experiences, working on interesting and breakthrough projects, and let’s not forget the Texas summer! The experience is more than what I expected.
