“I hear and I forget.
I see and I remember.
I do and I understand”
This saying by Confucius stands true in almost all areas of our lives, and more so when we are still young and are out and about laying foundation for a better life ahead. While a degree from college/ university may give you theoretical knowledge, an internship gives you hands-on experience and a better understanding of that theoretical knowledge.
