My All-Star experience has been pretty great so far. The people I have met in my time here are amazing. We live in a beautiful city and supportive community. It’s been a little bit of a struggle for me to get out of my comfort zone while at work and with others at home, but I’m definitely making some progress. I came into the internship without any expectations of what it was going to be. I didn’t really know very much actually about Foster Club at all really beforehand.
The best part is the freedom outside of the office and the different things to explore in the town. I like going to the bookstore to look at the books that they have and visiting the beach to swing on the swing sets and watch the sunset. The hardest part of the internship is the lack of organization and notice. I like to be organized and have a good idea of my week’s schedule. So not having that makes me agitated. It’s definitely something that needs to be improved.
I have had the opportunity to go to California and present to college students and their adult supporters about Strategic Sharing and Youth & Adult Partnerships. It was awesome to go back to Cali and actually make an impact in others’ lives. It was great to see the different perspectives of foster care through different generations. I am looking forward to going back home and making that impact where I live
