Internship experience that formed career goals

What is some advice that you would give to students who are currently searching for internships/who are about to do their first internship?
"Don't stop trying. Though it can sometimes be very defeating, don't let a "no" stop you from looking for another internship. There are so many opportunities out there. You have strengths and gifts that are ready to be used, so take your time, practice interviewing, get your resume constantly reviewed, and try again."
