I was responsible for...
My primary role will be advocating for individuals who are being abused. I provide advocacy and support to promote healing and empowerment for victims/survivors of violent crime.
The greatest accomplishment has been learning more about myself, accepting ad being willing to change. I am more confident within myself that I am where I am supposed to be in my career.
I learned that being in this field, sometimes all we need to do with the clients is just listen.
Advice for others...
Do your research to learn more about whatever company you're looking to intern with before proceeding. Know whats happening within the agency at that moment.
