My most memorable experience as an intern at Trybe’s Training and Development Department was in helping to plan, execute and facilitate a group of secondary school students for a leadership camp. At the camp, I learnt that it is fine to ask for help and to seek assistance. When I was unable to complete certain tasks for the camp’s preparation, some of my colleagues helped me and supported me through those tasks. Such gestures were not only heartening; it was also a humbling experience.
What impressed me most was the family-feel at Trybe; of how everyone in the organisation is closely knit and aligned in achieving the vision of “Every youth a success story”. My internship of three months has taught me to open up and to place my trust in others.
