Development Intern

June - August 2018 • New York City, NY

What I liked

One thing I really liked during my time work with the Development Team at the Harlem Children's Zone was the variety of work I was tasked with. I could not pick two days in my entire summer were remotely identical, and I loved this because I was able to build a multitude of skills.

Teacher’s Aide

June - August 2018 • New York City, NY

What I liked

I enjoyed working with the children, teaching them lessons, and attending trips with them. I loved the impact these kids had on my everyday life.

What I wish was different

I wish I could’ve worked with them longer and see their daily growth.

Advice

One piece of advice I would share is that every child is different and you have to be very patient with young children. They are also very smart and curious.
