Absolutely, internships are a great opportunity for you to gain experiences and try things you may not be inclined to if it was a full-time job. A diversity of experiences are more welcome than ever in the public or private sectors, a ton of research that backs up more variety/diversity/unique experiences, etc. that a company has the more successful they are. If you interview with a company that does not recognize that, can't see the value that different experiences bring, go somewhere else.
