I have diabetes.”

Benjamin Franklin was onto something when he wrote the words, “Doing nothing for others is the undoing of ourselves.” Within each of us is this innate desire to do something good for someone else.

Reflections on an Internship

Reflections on an Internship Thumbnail

Interning as an Administrative Professional while being able to use my Graphic Design Degree at United Way of Sheboygan County was only one of the awesome benefits I have received this summer. It also opened my eyes to how many beneficial programs and non-profit organizations are available to the residents of Sheboygan County. I am a full supporter of many of the missions of the programs United Way supports.
