By Caitlin Roth, CIP Berkeley Student
Thank you CIP for the wonderful opportunity, it has been a privilege. I appreciate all the help I’ve had from my tutors Marissa, Nikki and Bethany. They helped me a lot, especially during my second semester. I took a childcare course this spring and it went well. So thank you for the help and encouragement you gave me.
I would also like to thank my career coordinator for helping me with my job search. I am glad to have found a volunteer job and I feel like I’ve grown a lot and have learned more about children through that experience. Thanks for your helpful advice.
Because of the CIP staff, I have more confidence in myself since I came here. Thanks to the residential staff especially for helping me to feel more confident in my cooking skills. Just from last July until now I feel like I can cook more independently.
Finally, I am glad for accomplishing Honors and Mentor status. I know how challenging it is to get selected and I feel very privileged to have the opportunity.
