"My internship placement was a very positive experience for me.  I was able to work with the Government of New Brunswick in the Wellness Branch.  This gave me the opportunity to work with many different organizations like government, and non profits.  Working with many different organizations was an opportunity for me to see what type of organization I would like to work in and what populations suited my interests.  It also allowed me to use the tools I learned in class in a practical setting and see how the theory I was learning related to the real world. From this experience I could see just how many opportunities and settings there are to use my degree and really make a different in communities, it really made me excited for what the future could bring after I graduate!".
