“I needed to learn all kinds of new technology in order to intern with the Mansfield Destroyers that I had never used before in my broadcasting career. I acquired plenty of life lessons through living and working in a new community. I learned the importance of networking, community relations, good public relations, and generally treating those with respect.

“I could go on and on about how valuable this experience was and how much I learned, but I want to thank everyone involved with this award in helping me achieve my goal of becoming a sportscaster!”

“When I decided to pursue my career in dietetics, I knew my long-term goal would be to work in private practice and have my own business, but many registered dietitians (RDs) say to have an open mind when going into your internship since there’s so much to experience.

“We helped at the Talawanda Oxford Pantry & Social Services (TOPSS) and the Institute for Food Farm. I had no previous experience volunteering at a food pantry or farm before, but really appreciated these rotations.”

“I have never seen such a wonderful, healthy work environment as the one at Equality Ohio. Everyone was so loving and supportive. No one hesitates to jump in when some help is necessary.

“The majority of Equality Ohio’s work is centered at the local level, passing various non-discrimation ordinances. They also lobby at the state level for various bills and other legislative items on numerous contemporary agendas.

“I was balancing two jobs along with my internship, so I learned how to compartmentalize things and how to manage my time.”
