2021 Summer Internship Program Annual Report

“I am and always will be grateful for the opportunity to participate in AAPD’s internship program! The people and experiences, despite it being virtual, were essential to my development as a leader. I’m so appreciative of the opportunities we were given and I’m excited to apply my knowledge in the real world.” — Kristin Kumagawa

“AAPD has helped me gain a deeper understanding of disability advocacy skills and be able to use my skills from my internship towards future opportunities in my industry of focus.” — Justin Tsang

“One of my favorite parts of the internship was connecting with my fellow interns. They were all so committed to this space, and it was so nice to be amongst people that truly understood disability, as I do not have many opportunities to enter disability-specific spaces.” — Monica Mesecar
