YMCA Manager

August 2020 - September 2020 Chicago, IL
“I liked working in housing and with the homeless population. It was rewarding for me watching the homeless sleep as I walked toward my office. ”

Camp Counselor

May 2019 - August 2019 Chicago, IL
“What I really like about working as Camp Counselor at the YMCA is that everyone there is like family and if you are ever in the need of help they're are there for you. As someone who has been struggling in being able to land an internship since freshman year, the YMCA has been continued to offer me a job whenever I am in the look for a job. What I also like about working at the YMCA are the wonderful little souls (the children). I've grown to care for these kids as if they were my own, and being able to be a role model to them is amazing. Being able to see the children grow through these 3 yrs has been very amazing and fulfilling. ”
