Intern at an Outpatient Pediatric Oncology Clinic
This summer I was an intern at an outpatient pediatric oncology clinic, which was by far the most meaningful experience I have had in my life. At the clinic I worked with a Child Life Specialist to keep the patients busy and entertained with arts and crafts projects, the Wii, card games, etc., as visits to the clinic were rarely less than two hours. The most challenging aspect was to earn the trust and connect with the children and families who have had to endure one of life's toughest challenges. The work I did at this clinic was very meaningful and fulfilling.
Incredibly Supportive and Caring Community
Dana Hall is an incredibly supportive and caring community. Teachers, advisors, coaches and peers encourage everyone to take risks, pursue their passions and work hard. Everyone in the community is invested in each other and is always there for one another when things go right and when things go wrong. I know how to push myself, how to lead, how to ask for help, and so much more because of the Dana Hall community.
