“It’s been a blessing to be able to work with my student and watch her grow and develop. You know, although I was supposed to be the one teaching her, she was actually teaching me all along. I’ve discovered helping kids is something that I’m extremely passionate about, and I want to make a career out of it. With that being said, I’ve decided to pursue pediatrics. Project READS helped me discover what I’m really passionate about- my calling. It is such an amazing program and does so many wonderful things! ”
