Making an Impact Through Education: Kyrah’s Internship

This summer, rising senior Kyrah Wilson decided to lay the foundation for a future career in education. She completed an internship at Seedlings Academy, a childcare facility in Hershey, Pennsylvania for preschool children.

Learn more about Kyrah’s internship experience and the impact she wants to make on young people.

Q: What do you like about the field of education? 

A: One of my favorite quotes goes something like this: “It’s easier to build strong men than it is to fix broken ones.” I totally agree with this quote—I want to teach students to love learning and to be good citizens of the world. I feel like it’s my calling to impact the lives of young people.

Q: What made you decide to complete an internship this summer?

A: I enrolled at Milton Hershey School in 2007. With this summer being my last, I felt like it was the right thing to do to spend my summer doing something that will give me insight into what I want to do with my future.

My mom also passed away during my time at MHS, and I know she would want me to take advantage of this opportunity.

Q: What are you learning at your internship?

A:  I’m learning to be more patient and confident in my ability to provide redirection to the children.

My favorite parts have been building relationships with the children and seeing how this particular day care functions. The staff have been  very welcoming and make me feel like I’m one of them.

Q: How has MHS helped prepare you for this experience?

A: MHS has prepared me for this internship through the responsibilities we have on campus. There is a lot more responsibility that goes into a day care facility than I thought.

Q: What are your goals after graduation?

A: I plan to study Early Childhood Education in college. Eventually, I hope to teach in inner-city schools and change the future of our youth.

Q: What was one of the most meaningful parts of your internship?

A: During the first week, I was sitting back and taking in the whole facility. It’s a beautiful day care, and they have wonderful resources for the children.

At the same time, I was saddened because I’m from Philadelphia and I know what the schools and day cares are like in that area. They often lack resources and passionate staff.

Ultimately, it made me 10 times more grateful to be at MHS because I’ve never had to want or need anything like the children back home.
