My Internship
In my internship I help people with their college applications and I make labels for different colleges that students are more likely to apply to. When I arrive I sit down and wait for the college counselor to come in and if she is already in the office I ask her if there's anything that she would want me to do or if a student needs assistance then I help them.

Mrs. Emma attended Nursing School in New Jersey,City University and went to Stony brook for her masters. When she was little she knew that she wanted to be in the medical field. She got the inspiration from her two who were both registered nurses. The best thing about her job is being a positive influence on teens and helping them become healthier for a lifetime. She has been in the medical field for 40 years and the toughest aspect is when a child dies , calming down fights and just trying to make sure staff get along. On her spare time from work she enjoys jewelry making and sports ( swimming, skiing and hiking) and spend time with family especially r grown children.
