I hope everyone is doing well! I can’t believe this is my last semester as an undergraduate student! This is so surreal to me and hasn’t even hit me yet. Honestly, the first couple weeks of this semester was a little overwhelming because my course schedule wasn’t finalized yet because of financial holds and because I didn’t do an internship yet so I had to find one and register it before the deadline. My internship was a priority though because those are more difficult to come by and especially because I waited until the Spring semester had started, a lot of the internships had already found their interns. However, since I was in this online facebook community where I was able to network with different folks from different backgrounds, someone kindly reached out and offered me an internship. With two days left to register for my internship, the Director of the Health and Wellness Program at Hmong American Partnership confirmed it. I’m so thankful for everything that has happened and am feeling so blessed that everything has fallen in place in time for me to graduate. I’m so excited to start this internship and start implementing the theories and concepts I’ve acquired from my Public Health courses to this internship and additionally gain new skills to further advance my Public Health skill set.
That’s all for now. I’ll keep you all posted on how my internship turns out!
