The most memorable work-based learning experience that I had was my internship at the Matthews Free Medical Clinic which served patients that were 200% below the poverty line in my community. By working with the amazing staff and doctors, I was able to see the tremendous impact that they were having on families who otherwise would not have the healthcare that they desperately needed.

There are several aspects that have contributed to the happiest of memories throughout my time in the NAF academy but the work-based learning that has impacted me greatly would be the mock interviews. Without the preparation and the mock interviews, I don’t believe I would have been as prepared to confidently seek employment for my summer internship.
