Career/Interactive Student: Dakarai

September 23, 2015 by

Career/Interactive student Dakarai Conway is a 17-year-old who attends Bronx Engineering and Technology Academy in the Bronx. He works in quality assurance as the youngest intern at Gust.


Gust is a platform that connects startups with a collection of investors across the world. In my time with C/I, I learned many useful things that I can take with me to college and beyond, such as professionalism and learning how to code using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

C/I has also helped me further develop my team-working and professional networking skills. Every Friday, there would be these professional development sessions that I feel made our whole group closer. During these sessions, we would each tell stories of our week interning and what happened at our companies. Doing this helped us learn about each other and deepened our bonds. My internship at Gust, was the best (and second) job that I had. I’ve enhanced my experience in quality assurance, learned a lot from Gust and its employees. I even got to add Ruby to my list of coding languages. This was the best experience I’ve ever had and I’m glad to have received this opportunity.
