“I went through a lot of the different camps when I was younger. When I got a little bit older, I started using the basketball gym and working out. Now, and for the last few years, I’ve been working for the YMCA as a camp counselor and after care counselor. I worked at School One after care two years ago and I think that’s interesting because I went through the School One after care program when I was younger. I honestly love the excitement the kids get over the fun stuff we have planned for them that day. The relationship you build with the kids is also awesome. I’ve always loved working with kids so I knew this would fit. This job in general has taught me so much about patience and has impacted me as a person in many beneficial ways. The YMCA is a community that brings people of all ages, sizes and backgrounds together, which is why I think it’s special.”
