My name is Angelina Mai, and I’ve been working at LSA for the last six weeks as a summer intern. This experience has opened my eyes to a whole new fascinating world.
I’ve truly enjoyed all the moments that I was lucky enough to participate in during my time at LSA from board meetings and attending parties with the residents, to volunteering and making new friends at Costanoa Commons with CITP participants and staff.
LSA’s employees welcomed me with open arms. They’ve shown me the ropes of working in a professional setting, which will benefit me tremendously in the future. This opportunity allowed me to acquire an abundance of knowledge about the essentials of working in an office for a nonprofit organization. I was also able to take tours of the LSA homes, meet the wonderful residents, and job shadow a few of LSA’s nurses and rec therapists – which was very interesting to me because I aspire to become a nurse after college.
“I learned things from this internship that couldn’t be taught from a textbook or in a classroom, which is the importance of work ethic, communication, and working well with others.”
Everyone treated me with a tremendous amount of kindness. I’m thankful for this wonderful experience of being able to work with some of the friendliest people I’ve ever met. I learned things from this internship that couldn’t be taught from a textbook or in a classroom, which is the importance of work ethic, communication, and working well with others. This opportunity has been life-changing because it gave me a head start on real-world work experience, and I’m super excited to use these new skills that I’ve acquired during my summer at LSA.
