NASPA's Code of Ethics
NASPA's statement of shared ethical principles for individuals and organizations in student affairs is exhaustive and sound. NASPA has laid the foundation with the Council for the Advancement of Standards in Higher Education (CAS) with quality assurance, student learning, and professional integrity, and continue their mission to cement their practice in wisdom and honesty.

At Family Connection-Communities in Schools in Athens, I've been provided with many opportunities to contribute to our work. Many of these opportunities have come in the form of graphic design, as I designed the ticket itself for our Changing the Picture for Children in Athens Awards Dinner, as well as the accompanying art contest--reproductions of the winning art will be the given to the honorees, and the framing will be generously donated by Athens Art and Frame.
I've also gotten the opportunity to update our intern handbook for FC-CIS, updated our calendar, suggested representative titles for the interns, contacted UGA deans for contributing to FC-CIS, and contacted many potential sponsors to see if they would like to get involved in FC-CIS's many events.
Strengths, Weaknesses, and Areas for Growth
One of my main weaknesses is procrastination, as well as mustering up the courage to speak in large groups, especially if I feel out of my depth. I will always be grateful for my time in my internship at FC-CIS, where I was often surrounded by influential people in the community who have been working 10, maybe even 20 or more years for the betterment of children in Athens. I still have much more work to do to feel entirely comfortable sharing my thoughts and opinions, but I am continuing to work on my communication in every aspect of my life. One of my strengths is my ability to connect with people individually, and I hope to continue growing this skill.
