Potential Internships for a college freshman interested in trading?

Hello, I have made a similar post like this a few months ago, but now I am actually searching. I am interested in trading, as i trade equity derivatives (options, don't really dabble in futures) crypto futures and NFTs. I love trading and would love a trading position out of college. I'm currently interested in commodity trading firms and cryptocurrency / DeFI firms. So far I have cold emailed a few crypto market makers/ trading firms and have gotten some bites so far which is nice. I'm also connecting with someone at an ABCD for connections in the industry or a possible internship. I am now planning to continue applying at crypto firms and commodities brokerages, but was wondering if there were any places that may take freshman interns that pertain to trading? I will admit finding internships as a freshman is quite tough but I am willing to keep trying. Any suggestions would be helpful. Thanks!
