I was responsible for...
Some of the responsibilities are: answering phones, help with brainstorming for programming, preparing for upcoming programs, clean and organize facility.

I accomplished...
The greatest accomplishment from my experience has been learning a lot from the staff and having fun at the same time! There are too many important things I have learned to list them all!

I learned...
One of the biggest lessons I learned was: being willing to change or adjust your plans at the drop of a hat. You can never prepare for everything. Keep an open mind and be self aware.

Advice for others...
Find an organization that you mesh well with, where you can learn a lot and experience real world situations, but you can also have fun! Learning doesn't have to be boring!

Submit your experience!
