On one of our recent field visits, we learned the meaning of being called a lion. In Ethiopia, a person is a lion if they are innovative, foreword thinking, and daring. They represent strength and fortitude. After reflecting on this, we recognize that many lionesses have touched our internship and allowed our summer to be so fulfilling.
