From Intern to “Master Yoda”

From student to intern to staff, Masio, current Volunteer and Intern Coordinator at MATV/UMA reflects on the journey to this role and how he approaches it. “It’s all about being empathetic, Understanding what people want and what their expectations are in trying to fulfill that. Having had interned and worked at places where the culture was anything but inclusive and warm, I want to make the intern volunteer experience very inviting and open. I want everyone to feel validated and allow them to grow into whatever they see themselves being. I see myself as Master Yoda and the interns as my full of promise padawans.”
