This was the third Career Night held, and at each of the three, the representatives from the various careers have shared a common theme with the teens “when you find something that you are interested in, pursue it, and don’t give up.” They also stressed the importance of not feeling that you are alone in your pursuit. There are mentors who will help you, and you shouldn’t be reluctant to ask for that help.
Teen Services was fortunate to have representatives from
various areas of the medical field, from Eduardo Sanchez a medical interpreter,

nurses and RNs: Jennifer Darby, Carrie Brophy and Ingrid Barry.
