Summary of Internship
Every Thursday is always spontaneous. I have had days from where my projects are to bake healthy food items to days where my projects include doing research on how the media influences a young person's idea of health. Although my mentor is a registered dietitian, I have also learned what it is like to work in private practice and the responsibilities one has to work independently. Traveling into the city for me means taking a bus and a subway and at first asking people for directions all the time. Interning with Maye was definitely one of the biggest reality checks of my senior year. Since she is still modeling internationally, her time away means that I have to work from home and stay on top of my assignments because when I see Maye next, there are still expectations kept in mind. Maye is my mentor; however, she is so down to earth that we were able to establish a relationship beyond just working. She is not only my mentor but a role model in the fact that she lives to her word and is the epitome of staying young.
