It was an amazing opportunity. Our mock company went to Anderson Hay, a major hay exporter, inside a wind turbine, and on a potato farm. Also, I learned a lot about teamwork, communication, and vertically integrated corporations. Lastly, because I was CEO of the company, I gained firsthand experience with managing employees, most effectively utilizing their talents, and learning to work with a diverse group of people.
