Why did you want to serve as an intern at PT?
I have a genuine passion to serve. I especially wanted to serve as an intern with PT because of the children.
What is the most important lesson you have learned from working with children/youth?
The most important lesson I have learned from working with children is to have true compassion for one another, and simply always smile while having fun enjoying life.
What is your favorite part of the Project Transformation experience?
My favorite part of the Project Transformation experience is knowing that I have made a difference in the life of the children and parents, but also feeling that they made my life that much better as well.
If you could tell one story from your experience at PT – what story would you tell?
Let me tell you about my little ones…I mainly help first graders. Some of my kids couldn’t read, tell time, or advanced in math; however, I have done my best to tackle their needs. Those kids now are just a little bit more advanced than some of their classmates and actually look forward to certain subjects in both English & Spanish. That is a huge accomplishment when the children feel good about themselves and that they are confident.
