Week 9 – Detroit Community-Engaged Research Program

Week 9

This was the most bittersweet week out of all the other weeks. I was excited but also sad that I was at the finish line. All I could think of was how these kids were going to feel when I told them that I was going to leave. On the other hand, I was excited to go home to see my family and go to Cabo. I think that my site was great at showing me what community was because it reinforced how I believe what a community is. While running the summer sports program with 2 other coworkers, I feel like I was able to work on learning how to be responsible for a lot of people. I was also able to improve on finding the best methods to getting the kids to cooperate and being vulnerable with me and I think that will be useful for me in the future since my goal is to work with kids after graduating.

Other than that, it was nice meeting everyone. Maybe I’ll run into you guys while walking around campus.
