Summer As An OSC + Intern at the Peace Center

My name is Shaquana Beal I’m a youth worker at the peace center. In my first week I learned how to balance family, work and school. On July 3rd we feed 120 people for 2 weeks in a row. On the second week I learned about womanhood, I learned that you have to take care of yourself, have your own house, go to college, have a job, and to respect yourself. I really enjoy the field trips that we have gone on. We also learned how to be responsible, I learned that you can’t blame anybody for what you have to do and that you cant leave your team hanging. I also learned that you have can’t give up on your team and also learned that there's no I in team.
