Following your need to have an integrated system for user experience (UX and UI) I will effortlessly work with your team through guidance and with eminent teamwork to achieve this.

During the six-month internship programme, I will offer my undivided dedication to meet your expectations, explore my knowledge and acquire new skills. I feel confident that I would significantly benefit your organization.

Attached to this cover letter is my resume with my full contact details. I look forward to having a chance to discuss this role in person.
