Guest blog by RFC Intern, Konah Brownell. "I'm thrilled to be back for a second summer with the Rosenberg Fund for Children (RFC). If you caught my previous blog from last summer when I began my first internship with the RFC, you already know that I'm a former RFC grant recipient, and this time around, I've taken on a new role within the organization. This summer, I've been diving into the dynamic world of social media, crafting compelling posts and selecting thought-provoking articles to be shared across various platforms.

Guest Blog: Journey to Social Work

Submitted by Rachel Harb on Tue, 08/15/2023 - 09:06

My name is Damian, and I'm excited to share my story with you. I'm a Mexican, gay, cis-gender male with learning disabilities, and I've always been passionate about learning new skills and expressing myself through fashion. Right now, I'm on an amazing journey to pursue a college degree and career in social work. These aspects of my identity and interests shape how I see the world and how I want to make a difference in it. One thing that has been truly important on this journey is the incredible support I've received, including grants for tutoring and academic help from the RFC.
