If you live in the US, Canada, China, Israel, or Kenya, you may have heard of the organization, Project Sunshine. I’m very proud to work at this organization before I return to school in the fall! Project Sunshine is a nonprofit organization that provides free educational, recreational, and social programs to children and their families living with medical challenges. We have over 15,000 amazing volunteers that touch the lives of over 100,000 individuals, and I feel like destiny has a way of letting things fall into place.
I took a risk ending my last internship to go for this opportunity and I got it, and I feel very fortunate that I get to expand my skill-set and build my resume. I wrote two posts recently, one about applying to graduate school, and another about getting internships. For my readers who are still in college, I’m rooting for you to succeed in every way possible! When you set your mind to something and are persistent with going after what you want, whether it’s a job or internship, or studying or traveling abroad, you can definitely achieve your goals. 🙂
Right now, Project Sunshine is holding a Girls’ Night Out dress drive for a special event they are holding in April! Many teenaged girls who are undergoing expensive medical treatment don’t have the financial means to pay for formal dresses to wear to prom or other formal events. If you live in the United States and would like to donate a formal dress or your old prom dress, or even some dressy shoes and accessories, you would brighten a girl’s night by making her feel like the shining star she is!
