What skills and expertise do you bring to the team as an intern?
I have an AA and a BS in Psychology so I have a background in mental health awareness. This has provided me with education and training in human sexuality, counseling, as well as family therapy. I also bring my skills in research, writing, organization, and computer basics.
What has YES Institute done that you’re particularly proud of, that had you apply to be an intern?
The YES Institute has provided support for the various members of our diverse community. More specifically, it has helped prevent suicide among youth (and even adults) who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender.
What learning experience thus far, has had the biggest impact on who you are now?
It is very difficult for me to think of any single learning experience which had the biggest impact on who I am now. Many different experiences have taught and shaped me into the person I am now, and I am sure that many more will come around to teach me and shape me further.
