Interning with Golden Butterflies is one of the best things that has ever happened to me! This august opportunity made its way to me in the mid of August & I must say, this stint of 1½ months has been the bestest moments of the entire 2021!
The mile here is very friendly, yet upholding professionalism. I've always thought fun & professionalism would never go together- which after coming here was proven wrong!!
Not just our mentors who were guiding us, but also the other trustees of GB were very friendly towards us & encouraged each and every steps that we'd taken.
Ohh and to talk about my experience at ICH...Trust me you'll love it! Initially, I had preconceived notions about Cancer Children’s. My very first visit shattered all of it!! Yess!! That is when I understood that kids will be kid’s matter where they are, what their condition is.
The charisma they reflected really allured me and made me feel more lively whenever I worked with them. It's their energy that kept me going, and boosted me to do even more for their betterment. It is not the disease which was infectious, but their energy was damn infectious!
The concept of "Informal Education" was totally new to me when I came here. But in the due course of time, I think I've mastered this skill!
Follow these steps to know the secret of acquiring this skill. Which is- For a moment, forget who you are, what you're doing...Refrain yourself from all the negativity & oscillating thoughts...just think of your childhood...the things which made you happy...the moments which were very close to your heart...Re-live your childhood phase...Feel the kid in you...
Now you think of the things that will intrigue you & motivate you to learn. And yeah!! This is it. When you feel the kid in you, you'll reside in the mindset of a child & come up with lovely ideas to work with them. Ultimately, you'll find an irreplaceable place in the hearts of these lil lives!
The simple mantra to be remembered whenever you are working with the Children’s is "Feel the kid in you & do whatever you love!" Stop thinking this as a task which has to be accomplished! Instead, make yourself comfortable & become a friend to the Children’s and see all the wonders that will happen !!
I take this moment to thank Golden Butterflies for giving me such a wonderful opportunity to work with them. I've not only gained professional experience, but also have definitely learnt and acquired many values for life!
GB has become more like a family to me now It was quite hard to leave the office on the final day, holding up the tears- which were dazzling like a rain drop at the corner of my eye.But that is when GB, "again" made me realise that no matter how far we go, family will be always there for us, awaiting our arrival!! I knew that they will be always there for me.
I whole heartedly thank Ms. Clara, Ms. Rama & Ms. Stella for moulding me into a better version of myself! "It feels good when someone says take care; but it feels great when someone says I'm here to take care of you! But you know what??! Knowing that GB will be there for me to take for me made me feel superb special!!"
