Meet our Summer Interns!
|Hi! My name is Arti Prajapati and I am currently one of the summer interns at LDANB. I am so excited about this opportunity and look forward to further developing my skills and deepening my understanding of learning disabilities. As the summer intern, I work on a whole range of things within the office as well as tutoring kids with learning disabilities. I am an international student from India (born and raised in Qatar, though!) and I will be going into my fourth year at University of New Brunswick this fall. I am honoring in Psychology and also hoping to get accepted into the C-ABA program. My future goals are to attend graduate school and get my Masters in Applied Behavior Analysis in order to work as a Behavior analyst with children on the autism spectrum. My experience here at LDANB as a tutor will help me improve my communication skills and understand how to interact with children in an engaging and thoughtful manner.|
My hobbies are reading, reading, and more reading. I enjoy immersing myself in the world of fantasy and seeing the writing come to life in my mind. My goal this summer is to get out of the reading slump that I usually fall into during the rush of the semester and read as many books as I can on my TBR list. Some of the ones I have my eye on are Pride and Prejudice, Little Women, and The Shining. Apart from that, I enjoy going on walks with my friends in the evening and taking in the sights as the grass gets greener and more flowers begin to bloom. I tend to be easily impressed by greenery given that I have spent almost all my life in a desert!
Hello! My name is Sara Kean and I am thrilled to be working as a Summer Intern/Barton Tutor at LDANB. I am currently entering my second year of Speech-Language Pathology at Dalhousie University’s School of Communication Sciences and Disorders and graduated from the University of New Brunswick with a bachelor’s degree in psychology in 2020. In the future, I plan to pursue a career as a Speech-Language Pathologist and hope to work in either a school or clinical setting. When not attending school, I love to spend time outdoors and explore all of the beauty that our province has to offer. I am always up for a hike and love to spend time camping or relaxing near the water in the summers. My family also has a sweet (and very energetic) golden doodle named Cali who makes sure to keep us active and is constant source of joy and laughter for me. LDANB is a wonderful environment for me to pursue my passion for enhancing communication. I am extremely grateful for the opportunity to expand my own knowledge of foundational literacy skills and learn from mentors who are dedicated to the advancement of learning. I cannot wait to continue to grow and develop new skills over the next few months.
