Why did you want to serve as an intern at PT?
I heard about the organization and what they were doing to make a difference in the kids’ lives and I wanted to be a part of that change.
What is the most important lesson you have learned from working with children/youth?
As long as you are open with kids, they will be open with you.
What is your favorite part of the Project Transformation experience?
I love being around the kids and talking to them and their parents and learning where they come from.
If you could tell one story from your experience at PT – what story would you tell?
Every day the kids fight to sit with me during lunch and one boy in the program hugs me every day when he comes in. It warms my heart to know the kids really love me and I’m making a difference.
