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 Devany Morales, a student at Hillcrest High School who is an intern with Dallas ISD’s Career Education and Workforce Partnerships.
What is your role as an intern?
My role as an intern is basically to help out others and learn new things as I go. My role has ranged from creating field trip forms and calendars to simply cleaning out cabinets.
What do you hope to accomplish through the internship?
Through this internship I hope to accomplish the responsibility and pressure of working in a real life office job. It may sound like an easy job but due dates, numbers, and working with a variety of people all spread out can turn out to be quite a challenge.
What do you hope your career will be after school?
After high school I hope that my career includes working in the STEM cluster. I am mostly inclined towards Neuroscience and working in hospitals and medical offices.
What have you learned through the internship?
Through this internship I have learned how to use technology, work in a team, and be professional. I am sure that all these elements will help me in my future job.
