YAIP Testimonial: Angel Stevens

Angel learned about AHRC New York City’s Young Adult Internship Program through a friend who had participated in an earlier session of the program. Until that point, she has always preferred to work alone, but since joining the program, she has learned the value of teamwork. The ability to work with others to reach a common goal, combined with other skills she has gained through the program help her to make the best of her internship.
