In 2009, I first came to the Miami Lighthouse as an intern to work in their orientation and mobility department. The Lighthouse was very generous to provide myself and another intern housing as well as a stipend for the summer while we completed our internships. The Miami Lighthouse was a wonderful place to gain experience in my field and I had the opportunity to work with a diverse group of clients of all ages and backgrounds. After completing my internship, I returned as a full-time orientation and mobility specialist and I worked primarily with the adult rehabilitation program. I recently transitioned to working for Miami-Dade County Public schools and have witnessed first hand the positive impact that programs such as the Miami Lighthouse's Saturday program in Braille Literacy and Technology as well as the Transition program have on the lives of the children I work with.
