I love how welcoming everyone with MEI is, they made it so easy to feel at home and welcome once I started. The projects they have on their own are awe-inspiring and they are all well run. They are very flexible as well, allowing time to be taken to get things done as they value the quality of work. Overall, it is a great experience, as long as you are ready to work with your hands.
What I wish was different
There isn't much I wish was different about the internship. I have had no negative experiences and I look forward to going in every week.
Make sure you are prepared to work with your hands whether you are an intern or volunteer. The aquaponics systems are amazing and working on them and harvesting from them does require physical work that will get your hands dirty.
