Youth Intern Alumni Spotlight
Regional Youth Intern, 2012-2013
I was recommended to sign up for the Regional Youth Internship by my manager at my other job I had at the time. Being a part of this internship birthed the most beautiful transformation in me and allowed me to not only believe in my voice as a young person but helped me find that voice. Now I am Peer staff and on the Outreach Team at The Ruth Ellis Center. There, I facilitate our Youth Advisory Board and our Gay Men's Social Group called “The Black Book”. The Michigan Roundtable was a milestone in my life and that I appreciate
