I Need You To Think About This.
Here is an other perspective about why I am so thrilled about the second internship.
Because my voice will matter.
That is something you should care about, because I care about you. Let me eschew modesty for one moment to tell you that I am a very empathetic, supportive, and kind person. I say this because I need you to know that I am a safe person to connect with, who won’t belittle you or question you or doubt you or do anything weird. So, that being said, here is my request.
If you have a mental “disability” like bipolar, will you please let me know what a workplace can do for you, or has done for you in the past, to accommodate your needs?
My own perspective is too limited for me to trust it entirely, and the kinds of people I am meeting and the kinds of tasks I am completing and the power that I have has the potential to open doors and make life easier for everyone in Canada with mental health issues who wish to be successful at work.
Please help me to help everyone, by sharing your ideas with me so that I may be the best bridge that I can be, for all of us.
