SHANNON ROGERS – Oakland – 2013

I met up with a few colleagues at Cafe Rooz, near Lake Merritt, to work on treatment plan updates for our clients.  We complained about our terrible supervision and overall disappointment with our internship.  We got some work done too.  I worked so hard to get here.  Saved up money.  I’m relying on Tim to support us.  All this so I can work for free.  Some days, when I’m tired and I am scared about money, I lose sight of why I’m even trying to make a difference in the world and in people’s lives.  Some days I know exactly why.
