Attack Poverty

School Psychology Intern

March - May 2020 • Rosenberg, TX

What I liked

This place gave me a renewed sense of self. At Friends of North Rosenberg (FNRO) which is one of the local extensions of Attack Poverty, I got to put myself out there, talk to people, form connections, and know exactly the purpose of why I was doing it. I did tasks that I wasn’t comfortable enough to do before, and I feel very empowered. The more informed I become, the more confident I became in my abilities and have gained so much from this fieldwork experience.

What I wish was different

I wish I could change my response to certain situations. FNRO is highly related to social work and as such, there's only so much you can do to help someone else. Sometimes I would feel discouraged when others who were need of help looked down upon me for whatever reason. Over the course of the internship, I did have to find inner strength in myself.


Go outside of your comfortzone, and above all else, believe in yourself. Find what you have to offer and tap into that potential. When you experience something outside of your normal routine, open yourself to growth.
