What is your major?
I am double majoring in a bachelor’s degree for Community Engagement and Education and ASL studies with a minor in Urban Planning and Development.
What are your future career goals?
I would love to complete a MA in Interpretation and Communication. I have also considered Law School. I want to work with individuals who have disabilities in the fair housing and employment sector. If I studied Law, I would work towards becoming an ADA Attorney.
What is your role at Broadscope?
My ‘official’ title is Respite Provider Intern; however, you can find me helping across our various support services here at Broadscope. I often organize lists, contact workers and clients, as well as coordinate and self-manage different projects and activities for our programs.
Why did you choose Broadscope for your internship?
Growing up with disabilities is truly what brought me into this line of work. I have always really valued the people who helped advocate for me through school, work, and my daily life and I have wanted to be a part of that system for quite some time. Broadscope sounded like a wonderful opportunity to connect with and aid members of our community who have disabilities.
What have you enjoyed most about working for Broadscope?
My favorite part about working with Broadscope is hands-down the opportunity to connect with clients and meet so many wonderful people. I love every minute of our meetings where we are learning skills, doing various activities, and spending time together. I am so excited looking forward to more activities and events I will get to take part in with Broadscope!
How do you spend your free time?
I love to spend my free time decompressing with my pups, spending time with my friends and family, and cooking for my loved ones. I spend much of winter hibernating because I do not like the cold, so you can usually find me playing some Minecraft!
