Hello, everybody! My name is David Ma, and I am a summer intern for the MD Summer Kinect Program. I am entering my sophomore year at Montgomery College-Rockville this fall and plan to pursue a career in the field of business/accounting. I am a super friendly person, so youth, please don’t be afraid to approach me! I am also very outgoing and not afraid of trying new things. Basketball and writing poems are my favorite things to do. One of the most important things to know about me is that I love food. I think that food is a basic need that everyone needs every day, so all meals should be enjoyed to the fullest.
As an AALEAD alumnus, I have worked with AALEAD youth for the past two summers and had a wonderful experience both times, so I decided to enjoy another summer with the AALEAD family… except as an intern this time around! I think that it will be challenging learning how to balance my roles as a former student and current intern, but I am excited to develop stronger relationships with AALEAD staff and volunteers. I am also looking forward to learning as much as I can and building more career skills and experiences surrounding youth work, education, and nutrition this summer.
