My name is Natasha Cohen and I joined BNY Mellon for the 10-week summer internship program in Manchester working in Operations. I am currently studying Management and specialising in innovation, strategy, and entrepreneurship at the University of Manchester.

From day one, I was warmly welcomed by BNY Mellon team. The orientation week was exceptionally well-structured, providing me with valuable insights into the company's culture, mission, and values. The emphasis on strength in diversity, integrity, passion for excellence and courage to lead left me feeling inspired and motivated to contribute my best.

There are many learning opportunities at BNY Mellon such as the interactive workshops, training sessions and townhalls which has given me a deeper understanding of the financial industry. As well as networking opportunities with senior management which provided me a unique chance to connect with experienced leaders. These interactions have allowed me to build professional relationships and expanding my horizons. Moreover, I must emphasise the guidance and support I received from mentors and managers were instrumental in refining my skills and fostering personal growth throughout my journey at BNY Mellon.

Thank you, BNY Mellon, for an amazing experience filled with invaluable experiences and endless learning opportunities. I am excited about the journey that lies ahead and can't wait to see what the future holds!
