Tsion’s Story (ReOpp Intern)
Hi everyone! My name is Tsion Debebe and I am a high school senior and second-year Running Start student! In my free time, I love to travel, spend time outdoors, and visit my friends and family. I chose to become an intern for Reconnect to Opportunity because I wanted to raise awareness about mental health in my community and how to de-stigmatize it. During the beginning of the pandemic, I along with many other youth were facing countless issues so I wanted to shed light on mental health and how it was affecting them. While working as an intern, I have gained valuable experience about how to collaborate with teams and start different community initiatives to support community members.
