Hello, my name is Naomi Kubo. I am a student at Wells College and I am going into my junior year. I’m majoring in health sciences and I am volunteering over the summer at Healing H’Arts as an internship.
I have completed week 2 at Healing H’Arts and I have learned some very interesting things during just a short time. I think the most eye opening aspect is the amount of work it takes to running an organization such as Healing H’Arts. Healing H’Arts relies on many volunteers to help with running the program. However, Kirsta and Cyndy, along with the other members of their team, do a lot of extra things to make sure it runs smoothly. Not only are there building maintenance components of running this organization (such as cleaning and getting the arena ready for riders), there is also a lot of maintenance that goes into making sure the horses are ready to ride.
Although I’m only here 3 days a week, and 3 hours per day, I can easily see how much hard work goes into running this amazing place. I know that the reward is worth the hard work, and I know that Kirsta, Cyndy, and all the other volunteers would agree.
