The TCC Intern Experience: Diana Romero
Intern at Chinatown YMCA
My name is Diana Romero, and I'm a rising senior at Beacon High School. Born and raised in the Dominican Republic, I learned from a young age that I should always appreciate the little moments that make up my journey towards success. This summer I was placed at the Chinatown YMCA. At first, I was a little hesitant because I could not see how the Counselors in Training program would help in my pursuit of becoming a published author. However, I decided to take initiative, and now. I have been offered the opportunity to coordinate my own Youth Empowerment Event through the Arts for NYC Teens! This project is something that I'm really looking forward to, and I am so proud of the work that I have done so far. The event will take place Spring 2017, and details are yet to come, but I hope that I will be able to share this experience with all of my TCC peers!
