Dr. Mingu Lee, the program founder and director, began the presentation by introducing the purpose as well as his vision for the TALK internship program. He encouraged how this internship can influence future generations of leaders through maximizing possibilities for youth by encouraging them to follow their passions. He then briefly introduced the guests whom the students would present for.
Each intern individually presented their topic of interest and connected how Virtual Reality can be applicable to their field of interest. They incorporated their insight from visits to a Retired Military Officers Association gala, the Samsung 837 in New York City, and the Northrop Grumman innovation center in McLean, Virginia. Fields of interest ranged from Retail, Cybersecurity, Healthcare, Post traumatic stress disorder, and Marine Biology. Every intern shared how virtual reality can be a worthy investment for markets and consumers as this technology can be applicable for many career fields.
The passion from each intern was apparent as they were able to fully engage the guest listeners. General Farrell complimented each intern on behalf of a wonderful presentation. He stated, “I would like to congratulate you for being a part of a program that will prepare you for many opportunities in the future.” He encouraged them to continue pursuing their fields of interests and become inspirations for future generations. James Chung of Booz Allen Hamilton encouraged them that, “Some of the best ideas in this field has come from young and inspired leaders like yourselves.”

There is no doubt that you all will prosper in many years to come. Success will come and go in many forms in your life. Your attitude and relationships with others are more important than the success itself.”
