June 2019 - August 2019 Fort Worth, TX
“I loved having the hands on experience in a fun and hardworking environment. This internship helped to shape what I want to do as a career and reinforced my love for social work and psychology. I worked with a diverse group of hardworking people who loved their jobs and cared for all their kids like their own. Not to mention the leadership opportunities I had the whole summer being able to come out of my comfort zone, grow in my field of study, and learn so much from my enviorment.”
