Karina Rodriguez Torres, Ed.S. Candidate – School Psychology Program, Class of 2018
Karina is currently participating in a full-time paid school psychology internship at the Chaffey Joint Union High School District. She is continuously developing and refining her intervention skills with disabled students as well as her psychoeducational report writing skills. Recently, Karina participated in two important conferences for her career. She attended the Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities (HACU) conference in San Diego and the National Association of School Psychologists (NASP) conference in Chicago.
WorkAbility IV provided her with the interview and resume writing skills that she needed for the conferences. She was offered a summer art research opportunity with the Smithsonian Institution Museums at the HACU conference. She used her interview skills with the Los Angeles School District at the NASP conference for a school psychology position. She credits WorkAbility IV with boosting her confidence interviewing with employers. Karina relates that the WorkAbility IV staff are amazing and always strive to empower students by connecting them with internship opportunities and improving their career readiness skills.
A few words of advice from Karina, “Know the rules and then break them, so you can do you. I take this from Martin Luther King, Jr, Mother Teresa, Maya Angelou, and Holly Holms. They had to create their own rules and not follow the mold, so they could flourish into themselves and achieve their purpose on this earth. Lastly, don’t be afraid to get in trouble and allow others to get mad at you because you are following your purpose.”
