Poema S.

2022 TeenWell Ambassador and Intern

My name is Poema. I have been interning at Legacy Community Health for the past couple of months. At Legacy, I have learned a lot about working in a professional environment and how to research effectively. My supervisor, Jess Ferdinand, has created a collaborative space where we interns work with Legacy employees to maximize the effectiveness of our research. We benefit from the expertise and knowledge of these professionals who impart valuable wisdom about what it means to be a professional in a corporate environment. Simultaneously, I research topics that have always interested me. Not only am I getting invaluable experience at Legacy, but I am also allowed a voice in how healthcare impacts teenagers. In the future, I want to study political science and get my law degree. I would love to work in public policy or government to learn about lawmaking in the US.
