Hey everyone! It’s time for another Student Spotlight update. This week I bring you more awesome news from San Bernardino County. Chrystal spent the day out there with some students who were embarking on their interviews to capture their experience. Read about her thoughts below! – Lauren
Last week we had the opportunity to be part of the interview experience with nine students from the PAL Center in San Bernardino, Calif. The PAL Center is an incredible example of driven youth and supportive staff, which made for an amazing interview.
The first interview we filmed was with Josie Gonzales, the supervisor for the Fifth District for the County of San Bernardino. She was so gracious with her time, and the students asked really great questions. The biggest theme that came out of it was being responsible for your dreams and really working hard to get there.
The second interview was with PAL Center Founder Dr. Mildred Henry. The students we were able to share the experience with had great questions, and it was amazing to listen to them speak with the person that was so passionate about making sure they were successful.
I think every time I have the opportunity to film, I get as much out of the interviews as the students. They are so inspiring. I can’t wait to see all of the interviews that the PAL Center has for the Student Community!
