Nhi

Nhi joined GradGuard in June and has hit the ground running! She is passionate about the environment and brings her infectious smile and fabulous fashion sense to the office.

What is your university, major, and what drove you to pick that major?

 “I go to Arizona State University and I am majoring in Business Communication with a certificate in professional sales. I chose this major because I did not know exactly what I wanted to do, but I enjoy helping people and want to have my own business eventually, and I believe my major is broad enough to allow me to do what I want to do once I figure it out later on.”

What is your favorite thing that you have learned from being an intern at GradGuard?

“From my short time being an intern at GradGuard, I’m glad to have learned how transparent we are with everything, from how the policy works to how GradGuard operate as a company. I also personally think that we provide great customer service and always respond in a timely manner, and I strongly believe the customers feel the same way. I also like learning that Morgan is a vegan and that Stephanie enjoys cheesy reality TV shows like me.” 

What is your favorite inter-office snack that GradGuard offers?

“The veggie chips and Rice Krispie Treats.”

What is your dream job?

“As mentioned, I still have yet to figure out exactly what I want to do. But my dream job would have to involve traveling to different places and learning about others cultures, all while being well dressed of course.”

How do you take your coffee?

“I like to say that I like a little bit of coffee with my creamer because I tend to overdo it with the non-dairy creamer. Not too strong, not too sweet.”

Who is your favorite superhero?

“Thor and Captain America (only for their physical features).”

What is a fun fact about yourself?

“My favorite place to be is Trader Joe’s, even if I don’t need to buy anything.”

GradGuard just wouldn’t be the same without our summer team! We thank them for everything they’ve done for us and everything they continue to do. We hope you celebrate with your companies interns today and maybe ask them how they take their coffee. Happy National Intern Day!
