Addaline Stoll

My academic internship involved working with children who have been severely abused. These children have taught me more about myself than I could have ever hoped to teach them. I now appreciate what I have been blessed with, and never take anyone in my life for granted. I now know that I not only enjoy working with children, but am also very good at it. I learned that I am very passionate about helping children and their families succeed. My academic internship developed my professionalism, communication skills, and working under pressure.

I continue to work with this organization today and after I graduate this Spring, I hope to become an employee at either the Rice Child and Family Center or at another location within Children's Home and Aid before returning to school to earn my Masters degree in Social Work.
