And so another one of my interns got featured at FIU News. Alisha Cox is very talented and has a bright future ahead of her. The process of watching any volunteer or intern develop a passion for serving vulnerable populations is one of the most rewarding aspects of my job/life. #oneproudmentor
I remember when Alisha walked into my office to volunteer at one at our events. She was very shy and a bit hesitant. I immediately put her to work and envisioned me extracting all of her God given talents/abilities out her. By the way, I do that for all of my interns who are willing to thrive. I look beyond what is on the surface. Alisha followed along and performed substantially better than she or I ever imagined. She started out as smart, yet unsure of her capabilities; but now she is a born natural at teaching and developing contents. Her natural abilities to create is seen ubiquitously throughout the article below. I am very proud of Alisha Cox for her staunch support to the IDD population and for sharing her talents/skills with the Special Olympics Florida Healthy Community.
