Cecilia Lee, PEAK Internship ‘21: “The PEAK Internship taught me wholeness, or how to heal the divide in my soul. In academics, I practiced confronting cognitive dissonance. I learned to prioritize undivided attention and focus fully on that which was before me, whether a book, an academic discussion, or a conversation with a guest.
“Because of the continuity between work, academics, and spiritual formation, I began to understand that an undivided life is a life which does not ‘compartmentalize’ God but acts out worship in every realm, whether washing dishes, shoveling snow, or praying with my fellow interns. And I began to truly believe that God is never separate from us. The PEAK Internship provided the perfect opportunity for me to practice the presence of God in prayer, work, and every moment between.”
