Testimonials

I have learned so much about myself through this experience.  I learned just how naïve and sheltered I was to the world around me.  I see a more clear direction in what I want to do in my career as a human service professional due to seeing the needs of the clientele. I found a drive in myself to help this population that I didn’t know previously existed.  Lastly, I feel this experience expanded and built upon everything that I have learned as a human services student.  It is one thing to read about something in a book, but another to see it in action.  This has been an incredibly meaningful experience for me that will change the way I do human service work in the future.

I learned that I enjoy policy and how it applies in the field.  I find that administration and health care management are areas that I thrive in.  It was a learning experience to see the Macro and Micro elements of the Open Door Clinic come together.

I have definitely grown this month as a practicum student.  I took on a big project and I have been successful. I also have a new found passion for literacy.  This passion is shaping where my career is headed and inspiring me to work with young students in a classroom setting where I can encourage literacy and love of reading.

My Experience in the field has not only challenged me but helped me grow. I feel more prepared to enter the world as a Human Services graduate. My experience confirmed for me that this is the right field for me and that I am capable of applying what I have learned over the past four years to ANY agency. I am so thankful to have had the experience I had at the District Attorney's office and I cannot wait to see where my life takes me.

My experience in the field has shaped what I want to do within the field of social work after graduation!  I have gained a deeper understanding of the underprivileged and disadvantaged population and I have a greater appreciation for all the work, emotion, and devotion involved with being successful in the human service field.
