Having Heart

Monday, September 29, 2014
Going into my junior year of college, I felt it was time to start finding experience in my work that would benefit my future.

Going into my communications internship with Habitat for Humanity of Evansville, I was not quite sure what to expect. I hoped to gain some experience, to get a bit of hands-on work for a nonprofit organization. Throughout my summer here, I certainly did accomplish this.
