"It’s hard for Moore to pick the single most exciting aspect of her internship. “It's all been so rewarding,” she says. “I’ve loved getting to know the staff.

Last year, she created a mini graphic novel in the community-based learning course, Reading, Writing, and Teaching, and she plans to do more. “This internship has given me a new look at education. I think it will really apply to my future.”
