Major: Psychology

What’s happening? We’d love to hear how your internship is going.

I am an intern at the Pre-School Mental Health Program conducted by the Central Behavioral Health organization. I am very thankful that I got an opportunity that gives me the ability to combine my major in Psychology and minor in Education in order to work with children between the ages of 3-5. I really enjoy working thee because these children create a whole different environment than the one we find at Bryn Mawr. Through this internship I have been learning different kinds of therapeutic approaches and mediums through which one can communicate with a child who is experiencing a learning delay. I have also met some wonderful people and ventured out to new places in Philly that I never knew even existed!

How I heard about my internship?

I actually heard it through a friend of mine who is also a psychology major. For most of my other internships LanternLink was the best and the most convenient options, but if that doesn’t work, make sure to ask as many people as you can!

Why I applied for my internship:

I applied because I wanted to experience what working with children that have learning delays was like. I had always studied it or observed it from afar, but through this internship I actually got to experience being one of the trusted advisors in the facility and taking the responsibility of a handful of kids.
