Student Spotlight

Caleb Massimi

Caleb Massimi, a freshman at University at Buffalo, interned in the office of City Council Member, Antonio Reynoso as part of our Legacy Leaders Summer Internship Program. 

My internship helped me further develop my problem-solving skills; many times I was faced with an issue that I needed to solve independently. This taught me the importance of critical thinking and thinking outside of the box. Additionally, I improved my communication skills. I learned how to effectively convey my message clearly and concisely. This is a skill that will last me a lifetime.​​
