My internship at Youth Encouragement Services was on of the best experiences I have had at MBA. Being the overwhelming minority, racially and socioeconomically, was a truly unique experience for me, and I am thankful for the change to spend my summer with some of the most amazing kids in Nashville. Although I did simple housekeeping duties and helped prepare meals, most of my time was spent acting as a counselor for their summer camp, playing basketball, chess and enjoying all of their field trips to water parks as much as they did.
I am forever grateful that I had this opportunity, and I recommend that future students take advantage of it. I learned the invaluable lesson that love and patience can overcome any boundary. Thank you, MBA.
To get an idea what the summer is like, listen to last year's interns.
