In March, I came in contact with Claudia and Betsy. I needed to complete some servant leadership hours for school to graduate. Little did I know I would fall in love with Speedway Children's Charities and the people I was working with. I had such a great experience, I found out about an internship that could be offered. I applied and interviewed for the internship and now here I am.

I am currently interning with Speedway Children's Charities and I am loving every minute of it. I look forward to getting up every day to come in to plan events, contact donors and volunteers design flyers, just to name a few. Although I just started almost two weeks ago, this has been a great experience. However, I am still learning about the charity and how it works.  I cannot wait to see what is in store for me here at Speedway Children's Charities. I look forward to the events that are coming up and working with the volunteers.

When all is said and done, I can say I have been on both sides. I worked as a volunteer and now I'm working as an employee. My co-workers are great and I love the enthusiasm they have for the charity. I am learning every day how much hard work goes into working for a charity. This is an opportunity I am thankful for and so excited about what is to come!
