With 2013 now in full swing,
HSP would like to take the time to
introduce you to three new interns who have joined the HSP
team. All three of these interns will be assisting HSP
in the annual process of interviewing and writing “Senior Updates” for all of
the needy seniors served by our Senior Citizen Project. This assignment is an
extremely important one, as it not only allows HSP
to keep up to date on the individual needs of each senior, but also allows HSP
the opportunity to show the supporters of the project just how big of an impact
their generosity is having in the lives of the seniors. HSP
is excited to have these three, bright, new interns on this assignment.
First up, we would like to introduce Tom McCann who began his internship last Wednesday. Tom is completing his internship with
fulfill his Community Service Practicum for the Adler School of Professional
Psychology where he studies Gerontological Counseling (counseling for the
elderly.) Tom says he selected HSP as the
site of his practicum because of the passion he has for serving the elderly.
Also coming to
from Adler is Colleen Finnegan, who just started her internship at HSP
today. Colleen is at Adler training to be a Marriage/Family Counselor. Like
Tom, Colleen says she was drawn to HSP
because of her desire to help the elderly. She previously worked serving needy
seniors as an intern at non-profit that assists adults with disabilities.
Last, but not least,
would like to introduce you to Ulupi Bodiwala, who also began with HSP
today. Ulupi attends , where she is majoring in English with a
focus on Creative Writing. After college, Ulupi hopes to get into editing and
publishing, but also dreams of being an author. Ulupi says she is very excited
at the opportunity to use her love of writing to help University of Illinois
best serve the needy seniors in our project.
