Meet Our Summer Intern
Naomi Learns New Skills at LVGH
Meet Naomi! Naomi is a local high school student entering her junior year at Hartford’s Sport and Medical Sciences Academy, and she completed an internship with us at LVGH this summer.

“It’s such a calm, welcoming environment,” Naomi says. “It helped me work on my Spanish skills, but also my skills to communicate with all kinds of people. When someone walks in and you’re not sure what they’ll want, and you figure it out together. I talked to a lot of people who didn’t understand me at first, and it felt so nice when they realized they had someone to be able to speak the same language.”

As for her future, Naomi says she’s excited to finish high school and begin to pursue her dream career. “I plan to be really dedicated to my grades this year because I want to become a doctor- specifically a pediatrician. Helping out in the childcare room was really great practice. Every child is so different.”

We’re so grateful to Naomi for all of her hard work this summer, and we wish her the best of luck this upcoming school year!
