My Summer at Delphi internship was magical. It taught me how to be a leader, be responsible, be caring and how to balance different things at the same time. It was a bit hard at first not knowing what I was supposed to do on my job and how to do it. My partner and I ran into some problems, but at the end, with enough confront and intention, we were able to fix the problems and do well on our jobs.
Before coming to internship, on my way out of my house I was telling my parents that I didn't want to go and that it was going to be boring, but I am so glad I did it anyway. If I stayed at home I would've just watched movies and would have done nothing. This internship was a challenge in many ways. I wasn't lazy and couldn't be lazy and I loved it, and constantly being active and getting to know new people was great.
My job was Student Activities. This meant that I was in charge of the weekend trips. At first, when I had the option to tell Sam Silver and Kori Curry if I wanted that post or not, I wanted to tell them I wanted to do something else instead, but I'm glad I didn't. Even though that post required so much responsibility, confront and intention I had so much fun on the job and even more fun when the students enjoyed the activities.
I also learned that in order to have fun, enjoy something or succeed in something you first have to decide you can for yourself. The interns were told that the Middle School Seattle trip was going to be a lot of hard work and that previously interns were fired because they didn't do well on that trip. At first I was really scared I was going to do badly, but then I decided it was all going to be fine and it was. I ended up having so much fun with the kids and on the bus rides, and it wasn't at all as awful as I thought it was going to be.
Internship, like I said, was magical, and even though you might think you aren't going to gain anything out of it you are wrong. You are going to do things you have never imagined you were capable of doing and you are going to love every second of it.
