I’ve been feeling the need to write, a lot, lately. I feel like I am so stuck in my career and not quite sure how to “goo gone” myself. I am currently working a job that doesn’t fulfill my passions or even make me a better person. The feedback I’ve been getting whilst interviewing for […]Read More I’m Stuck!!?

While I […]Read More ONE WEEK LEFT OF MY INTERNSHIP
One of the most popular group activities I chose to do were finger puppets! Long story short, I helped about 10 people cast their fingers in the playroom (most wanted to do all five fingers), and we let them dry. While they were drying I got paints, stickers, and markers ready so that once the […]Read More Finger Puppets!
I could talk about how I have a 4.0 GPA in my major, nanny for three families, volunteer three times a week, have experience at a children’s hospital with child life specialists, experience at a Family Relief Nursery, or experience at the Ronald McDonald House Charities, but I think the real reason I stand out […]Read More What makes you stand out among the rest?
