“PIM exposed me to the nonprofit world and all of its possibilities. It also showed how easy it is to get involved in philanthropic work, even as a student! I got to work with all sorts of different people and create connections that will remain meaningful no matter what career path I ultimately take."

"Sometimes you can be so attached to a cause, but the organization you've selected isn’t necessarily having the most effective or greatest impact on that cause. It’s interesting to prioritize between what types of causes are most important to solve and which organizations are best at solving their respective causes."
