I have been an intern at StreetWise since September 2014. I will work with Streetwise as my first level internship placement from Loyola until next May. I am currently working towards getting my MSW with a specialization in Mental Health and will be graduating in 2016.

At Streetwise I work in the Vendor Program working with different participants to help with a variety of challenges they face. A good portion of StreetWise clientele are either at risk or homeless so it is incredibly important to me to try and support them in whatever way I can.

I sell magazines outdoors. I need a winter coat and boots so I can sell in the cold.

Working towards stable housing and my bachelor's, I sell magazines to make a living. Winter clothes will keep me warm as I work. More
