My internship at the CCRC has truly been one of the greatest experiences I have had thus far in my academic career! I am a dedicated and compassionate professional with several years of experience as a front-line social worker. When I started my graduate journey at Toronto Metropolitan University, I knew that I wanted an internship that would allow me to translate my social work skills and knowledge into the field of communications. The CCRC was a perfect fit for me as it aligned with my passion for social justice and allowed me to continue within a role of advocacy in a creative way!
My internship with the CCRC has provided me with an invaluable learning experience! I have had the opportunity to work alongside board members from the CCRC who hves helped me to achieve my academic and professional goals. I was both challenged and excited by the opportunities presented to me in my role as a Communications Intern. Taking lead on new projects that I have never done before helped me to expand upon my personal portfolio and gain new insight and skills within communications.
I am very grateful for the opportunity that the CCRC has offered me during my academic journey as I work towards completing my degree in Master of Professional Communication. I have learned so much and most importantly, I was able to continue work related to social justice and children’s rights in a way that will leave a positive impact within our society!
