Camp Kesem in Utah Valley Director

April 2018 Provo, UT
“Camp Kesem is a free week-long summer camp for children whose parents have cancer and it was awesome to not only relate to them, but work as a team with 15 other college students to help get 230 kids to camp. I was able to use a lot of various skills to help me create and build on my leadership skills, teamwork, business management, communication, PR/marketing and a lot of other various aspects. It helped in a lot of ways to prepare me for future work endeavors. I loved working with others and their various talents, to all come together and work on this common goal. I loved being able to see the growth and development of an individual as well as all of my team as a whole. ”
