What was memorable for me during this internship was that we invited one of our youths to be part of our project where he baked a cake for his father. It was very heart-warming for me to see how much the family was bonding over dinner and the activities we had planned for them, and even more so the smile on the father’s face when he was presented with the cake. It was also during this project that I learnt that community partners are essential for a charity. We invited an Instagram baker to help out and requested to film at a café whose employees were nothing short of amazing and helpful throughout the shoot.
