Dr Rebekah Paci-Green
The activities that I did during my internship were done in three steps. The initial step was to collaborate with students, faculty and staff to identify the needs of students. Through research and outreach, we discovered that students want to develop their academic, social, and professional identities. The second step was finding mentees, which was done by creating posters, speaking in classes, and getting the word out to students. The third and final step was developing, planning, and attending events with assigned mentees. The activities done within the internship helped to achieve the mission of making students feel seen and heard. I feel as though I successfully helped to create a program that was tailored towards the needs of the students. I became more confident in learning about my strengths and weaknesses.
