#1 Takeaway

The most important thing I have learned is to have fun. Working with high school students has been a crazy experience and I have really enjoyed it. I have had a lot of fun. I think in life you can prepare but not everything will be perfect so you have to enjoy as much of it as possible. I think I have also learned to be open minded. When I began, I expected that I would be teaching my students but I think I have actually learned more than they have. I have also learned from the staff and volunteers and have had the most unforgettable experience.

I will probably post this and by tomorrow think of 10 other things I could have written about. I guess more than anything I have learned to follow my passion. I came into AU with a passion for working with development in Africa. That let me to study abroad in Africa. While studying abroad I realized I had a new passion for food and nutrition. This led me to look up jobs in this category where I found Brainfood. And now I am hoping to find a job where I am working with food, nutrition, urban gardening, and youth. But no matter what I will continue to follow my passions.

As my last post I would like to thank all of you out there who have been reading my posts. I apologize for the inconsistency, the life of a working and interning college student is crazy. Also I would like to give a shout out to the AU Career Center and AU Interns for this opportunity to blog and gain new skills.

And if you would like to continue to follow my life you can check out my personal blog commelaurynquoi.tumblr.com

Thanks again everyone

until next time

Lauryn
