This internship requires ample independent work, and an intern working here needs to be organized, motivated and patient, because you are not under constant supervision as you work.
First and foremost, I liked that I was treated as an equal and not just an intern. I was given the opportunity to make my own decisions and my ideas were always considered, and sometimes even pursued by the executives Matthew and Dean. I also liked that I was shown what the "real world" is going to be like, such as independent work, group meetings, fluctuating hours, etc., and I wasn't simply "coddled." Lastly, it was extraordinary for me to see my work making a difference for the Deaf community, such as the #OpenCaptionsNow movement.
My major duties were to assist the class by helping the students while doing work, making hand written copies, doing errands, and just helping when I was needed with various things. I also established an adopt a classroom program between the school in the Dominican and a school in Penn Yan, N.Y.
The best aspects were being in another country and experiencing life as an everyday citizen of the Dominican Republic. Also, I loved the kids!
Among other things, filling water bottles and taping ankles.
The best aspects were meeting some cool guys on the team, and attending every home game. I was even announced at every game as a part of the Lancer staff and ran onto the field with the team. Last but not least, my knowledge of the game of soccer increased.
