What Makes Us Unique

Cheryl Ghosh

After only six weeks at Adobe, I’ve come to learn that our work is not just a drop in a bucket (yes, even as an intern). The reason for this is because Adobe’s work doesn’t stop in the “office” or when I clock out for the day. It continues in our day-to-day, in our conversations, our contributions to society, and in our communities. It’s uplifting our peers and always challenging ourselves to do better.

I loved the ASA program, especially the ASA team as everyone was always supportive and encouraging for your career development. I’m back full-time and can’t thank ASA enough for the opportunity to kick-start my career. I wouldn’t want to be anywhere else, truly.
