Gabriel is a 10th-grade student at Inwood Academy and he is sharing with us what he learned while working as an intern at the high school this summer.
This summer has been great. I’ve had a positive experience and great support at my first summer job, which was very exciting. I learned many things about what it takes to run an office and saw first-hand what good work ethic looks like.
This experience mostly taught me how much more I should value my parents, their work and the struggle they go through to keep our family going, and what makes a good adult. I didn’t realize until now how hard you have to work to earn a living and how I need to value work opportunities that come my way.
I’m looking forward to a great rest of the year. I hope to find work for the remainder of the year and I plan to start saving for my future goals.
Thanks to Inwood Academy for such a great experience this summer, working in their office. It taught me more than just how to have good work ethic. I’m a better person, and a better son because of this experience.
