A freshman at Newton South High School, Gina (pictured on the left) was skilled in instrumental music and languages. She was interested in finding an internship where she could convey her expertise with multiple musical instruments as well as one in which she could develop her public speaking skills. We arranged two experiences for Gina. She became a part-time guide at the State House where she created a speech and led tours for international visitors.
In addition, she interned at a wonderful music school as an assistant teacher of instrumental music in children’s classes. Her mentor, Rachel was an outstanding Harvard trained arts educator who provided Gina with advice and inspiration. Rachel created additional administrative opportunities for Gina including parental phone contact and mini-research projects relating to operations. Rachel told us, “I was so impressed with Gina’s maturity and flexibility. She added such positive energy to our office.”
