My name is Sydney White and I would love to talk to you about a potential internship. I currently attend VCU and I’m majoring in exercise science. I have always had a soft spot for children and believe that they are our future and we need to direct and lead them into the right path. I would be thrilled to hear back from you, and give you more information regarding an internship.
