I love my internship. Except for the hypervigilant and somewhat paranoid supervisor of me. 

But I love it. I love the kids, and the idea of an after-school program.
So, here they are. Here are (some) of the kids that have changed me significantly.

I help kids with their homework for an hour, then play with them/monitor them for the next two hours. Except for Fridays. Fridays are Fun Fridays. Fun=No Homework.


  1. Changed you in what way or ways??? mom

  2. Given me a very strong awareness of cultural influences and differences. Shown me just how big is the need for positive influence in the inner-city, and demanded that I know them well before they even start to try to know me. Trust is huge.
