The Mayor’s Intern Fellows Program gives Dallas ISD high school juniors and seniors real world experience in a professional field.
The Hub is spotlighting some of these Dallas ISD students participating in the program. Today, meet Galilea Hernandez, a student at Irma Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School who is an intern with Dallas ISD’s Summer Learning and Extended Day Service Department.
What is your role as an intern?
I assist with the departmental organization for the summer program that is taking place, draft agendas for meetings, as well as help with the organizations of Excel documents and other small tasks that I am asked to do.
What do you hope to accomplish through the internship?
Through this internship I hope to accomplish networking skills, start building a better portfolio of the work that I’m doing, gain insight as to what it feels like to work in an office, and gain responsibility.
What do you hope your career will be after school?
Once I am done with school I hope to go to college to study criminology, join the armed forces and later become an FBI agent.
