We are sad to say that our intern, Christie, will be finishing finals and heading on to her fun summer plans next week. Before she can go too far, we had her write another blog about the second half of her internship experience. Check it out!
Making a House a Home
My 15 weeks at the House have gone by in a flash and now it is time to reflect on my experience.
I worked on a variety of projects during my time; my favorite being the design of the Annual Report. I created new pages which focused on the three main events: Sweetheart Ball, Golf Tournament, and Ride. Constructing a page which promoted the accomplishments of each event and the hard work put forth by the House and Committees was exciting. The efforts to make the events possible are extraordinary and they deserve to be better recognized.
Keep an eye out for the Annual Report to be released- you’ll be inspired by the work constantly being done by the House.
The RMH gives families comfort and support during difficult times. Additionally, the sense of community is felt on all floors. On any given day you will most likely hear laughter and stories being told in the corner office- Erica’s office. This is where I spend most of my time when I’m at the House. I have gotten to know Erica very well and we are constantly discovering new things we have in common. I’m honored to call her a friend. She has inspired me to pursue my passions and set challenging goals for myself.
If you don’t know Erica, you’re missing out!
Currently the RMH is developing new strategies which bring more families, volunteers, and donors to the House. It is amazing being part of a House focused future growth potential. My internship experience allowed me to grow as well. I was challenged, inspired, and trusted to do my best at all projects. Everyday I learned something new about myself and the staff members. This internship experience has encouraged me to continue pursing my passion in non-profits.
I have made the Ronald McDonald House my Home.
I hope you got a sense of the experiences I had while interning at the House. With welcoming arms and kind hearts, the RMH gladly opens their doors to families in need. I encourage you to take an hour and come by the House to visit. Take part in the experience that makes this House and Home to many families- and interns.
