Erin's story

intern 1 erin

My name is Erin and I am a Science Pre-Professional major with a minor in Poverty Studies at the University of Notre Dame. In the future, I am hoping to go on to medical school. 

I applied for an internship at Emmaus not completely knowing what to expect. I had little experience in the business realm before arriving at Emmaus, so I learned a great deal during my time here as I assisted both in the finance department and with business duties throughout the office. I felt challenged but also motivated, since I was working for the bigger cause of supporting the Emmaus community.

I have to say that I was surprised by how much impact working at Emmaus had on me. The community support here is unlike anything I have experienced in a work environment.

Throughout my time at Emmaus Greenwich, I not only expanded my knowledge and experience of business, finance, and human resources, but I also formed lasting friendships that I will carry with me long after I leave the UK. I am very grateful for my time at Emmaus, and I am proud to say that I feel I am now a part of the wonderful Emmaus community.
