Bonner Summer Fellowship Program Student Perspective Service Site: National Coalition for the Homeless, Washington DC Fellow • When I started working at the NCH, I was terrified when I got my assignment. While I came into the internship with an open mind and not knowing what to expect, I subconsciously had the image of a typical “intern” in my head. I imagined I would be a small component of a larger project, working under the supervision of someone else, doing a lot of work, but ultimately not being the one “in charge” of the project. This was not the case, and I was hit with the reality that HPAN was all on me. I had no idea where to start. I got a list of states to reach out to, and some contact suggestions from my supervisors, but other than that I did not receive any direction for the project. It was time to get creative. At first, it was overwhelming seeing the other interns work. Our office is tiny, and the environment is not competitive at all, very friendly. However, while everyone sat at their desks furiously typing all day long I felt like I was sitting in my chair, staring at my computer, thinking for the first 3 weeks of myKatherine NguyenRutgers University- Camden, 2015Hometown: Cherry Hill, NJ
