I’ve recently passed my one year anniversary here at Kids Wish Network and I can tell you it’s been a year to remember! Looking back, I never thought I would end up working at a non-profit children’s charity but I couldn’t be happier. I graduated college almost 6 years ago (yikes!) and after “finding myself” for a few months, I went to work for an insurance company. I worked there for 3 years before moving to Florida. When I got hired at Kids Wish Network I wasn’t sure what to expect. Working for a children’s charity is a job that, on a semi-conscious level, I knew existed but it never crossed my mind to actually work for one.
To say the least, I am glad I accepted the job offer. I get to interact with hundreds of kids (some in person, some via pictures) and I get to see smiles and hear stories and just really enjoy them! It’s the unexpected things in life (illness, new job, unfamiliar surroundings) that make people unsure and uneasy. I wasn’t sure how things would work out for me here but this is one unexpected thing I’m glad I didn’t shy away from.
I can’t see what year two has in store for me…. Ch-ch-ch changes! =)
