My personal qualities, experiences and values directly coincide with the Henrietta Schmoll School of Health’s Mission Statement. I am an extravert who cannot go more than a day without interacting with people and these interactions bring fulfillment to my daily life. The majority of my day to day life revolves around relationship-center activities. For example, I work as a coach for children from the ages of three to fourteen, I volunteer as a tour guide at my University and I lend my time to organizations such as People Serving People (the local homeless shelter) and the Special Olympics. My happiness is influenced by my ability to make those around me happy and I pride myself in my ability to make instant and long lasting connections.
Field Journal #2 For the time that I have spent being an intern case manager at Mary’s Place Refugee Outreach, I believe that my personal growth as a person and in knowledge is never ending. From learning to be more assertive, to learning about how to navigate the Department of Social Services, I absolutely love my internship. A day has not gone by where I have not learned something valuable, whether it be from helping a client with their problem or from learning from my co-workers. From this internship alone, I have learned a lot about myself and from the people I work with. What Have I Learned About Myself?
Interning at the Green Room Community Theatre didn’t feel like work, it was an amazingly fun experience with great instructors and interns. My expectations going in on the first day were more than exceeded especially after I met David Townsend which is an incredible role model. He is so passionate about what he does and I hope one day I will feel the same way about my career choice. I couldn’t have been happier with where I chose to intern. I met so many amazing interns that I hope come back and intern at the Green Room again just as I hope to next summer, we all got along so well and there was never a dull moment between us.
Overall I am completely satisfied with my experience from History Maker Homes. Not only is the company small and feel like a family but I had a one on one experience with my supervisor that was able to focus all of his time towards teaching. I have learned how to overcome many challenges. I have continued to build on my education from classes I have taken. My internship has become a valuable learning experience that I will continue to build on when I start back at Texas A&M University in the spring.
I continue to make our patients our number one goal and keeping them happy and happy with our services we provide for them. I did feel a little overworked since March and I look back and see it is because of our growth in patient visits and how we were able to open more new patient slots and work flow changed help with getting patients in. I was not as much in front as I was in the past years and
Community service is not only about receiving hours to put on a resume, but it is something that can be done to guide others and make them feel better. An example of this is when I was part of the Martin Luther King day of service at Stockton University two years in a row. I sewed pillows and made pins to support the unfortunate; this was a great experience where I was able to make new friends and contribute to the society. Service is not only about being part of large organizations, but it is also about doing small deeds for others, like staying after school and contributing to a club even if it is not mandatory. I also was part of Project Green where I picked up garbage on the beach and planted marram grass.
We started being more than friends a week before school started, he’s been opening up more to his family and the people around him. we just kinda became each other 's night and day, Heron is one of the closest people I have to me, he’s always here when I need him and he is nice to me. I find are relationship important because he doesn 't treat me the wrong way and he doesn’t try to hurt me. I give him my all to make him happy as possible and he does the same. Having the relationship has opened me up more and has shown me that nothing bad and always hold me
Her son and my son are best friends and have been since a young age. She was also my friend before she became my supervisor. Whenever we are conversing during “business hours” we keep our discussion focused on work. After hours, we discuss our family, friends, and other topics that are personal. I perform my work requirements to the best of my ability and she always treats me like she would any other employee.
Last summer I had the privilege of working at a residential camp as a counselor. I had many different responsibilities, including taking care of campers, leading tasks, programming activities, and working on logistical endeavors necessary for camp. I began working at Aldersgate not only because I needed a job, but because I remembered the unforgettable experiences I had as a camper when I was younger. Most summers, when I went there for a week, I made new friendships, pushed physical boundaries, gained some independence, and further explored my faith. Returning as a staff member exceeded my expectations.
In my situation it turned out really well. The client came to realize that he was stepping over some boundaries but he was not offended or angry about it. I worked with him for about a week after the situation was resolved and I have seen him a few times at the current program I am at and he has been friendly but appropriately so. I am not worried about managing my time for this program because I have been doing a great job of managing time in my current practicum experience. I am still working part time at my current job but I have made it clear that school comes first and that I need to set time aside to do my practicum as well as have time to do my school work.
A full team meeting at least once a week to update its progress will also be very helpful. Our team has improved a lot since Thanksgiving, and we have been able to catch up with our timeline. Another improvement that we can make is to challenge each other’s idea more. By questioning and having doubt about each other idea, one must come up with qualitative reasoning and will result in a more polished and finished idea. 4) Next week is our last lab.
