My name is Jane, and I am a senior social work major. As a junior, I had the pleasure of interning at St. Agnes, a day center for older adults with Alzheimer’s, dementia, and other disabilities. This year, I interned with an entirely different population: students at Merrillville High School. I spent my time interviewing students, particularly freshmen who were new to the high school. I eventually facilitated groups at the school—giving presentations, and compiling a list of resources for the students. After graduation, I will pursue my master’s in social work or continue working with youth. end
