We are so excited to be back at Cox for our third year of the LIFE Program. We have a fantastic group of interns this year, and they are so excited to be here! I asked them to write about their summer break, and I also asked them to write about where they will be working and a few other questions about the LIFE Program. The interns will begin working on Monday! We are so grateful to Cox for the continued support, and our interns love their new shirts and shoes!
During my summer was great. My family and I went to Savannah Georgia to see my Uncle, Aunt, and cousins at the beginning of summer. We went to Tybee Island Beach. The next day, after Tybee Island we went to the mall and we bought some new things. During that day my family left from Savannah back to Atlanta but I decided to stay in Savannah with my Uncle, Aunt, and cousins. The next day it was my birthday. When my older brother, my younger sister, and my mom came for me, during July one of my older cousins, my older brother and I went to the AMC Theater to see Spider-Man Far From Home in imax. It was great! My family and I also went to Six Flags after my Mom’s birthday and it was fun and we got wet.
On my first semester I’m going to work at the Main Cafeteria every morning but in the afternoon I will be working at the Chip Allen Fitness Center. What I’m excited about is that I am going to have some fun with my friends and my two new jobs. If I have a question or get confused about my job at the Main Cafeteria I would ask one of my new co-workers about what, how, or can I do. I want to learn more about how to cook like I did back in Tri-Cities High and I also want to learn how to pay bills after I get out of the life program. I want to be in the life program because I want to be prepared for the real word. That’s all I have for today if you like this blog please leave a like and subscribe and I’ll see you tomorrow and I gotta say it’s good to be back! – Enoes
The first thing that I did for the summer time was go to the gym. The second thing I did for the summer break was went out to eat at Olive Garden. The third thing is I went to the movies to see Alice Through the Looking Glass. The fourth thing is I spent time with family in New York. The fifth thing is I went to the park. The last thing I did was sleeping.
The first thing that I am happy about is I get to work in the C tech cafe. The second thing I am excited about is I get to work with lots of new people and also get to learn new job skills while in the cafe. But some times I do get nervous trying to find my way around my new job site. I am a little nervous about getting directions wrong or messing up things while in the cafe. The most important thing I want to learn this year is learn how to fill out a job application. I want to improve on my job skills and one day become a great boss. That is why I love to learn so much from all my teachers. I am nervous about getting to my job on my own sometimes because everything is still new and I also want to learn how to ride MARTA on my own . – Briana
I went to the movies to see Toy Story 4. I also went to see Child’s Play and The Lion King. I went to Main Event. I went to the Georgia Aquarium. I played video games all summer.
I will be working at the c tech mail room . I am excited about going to work by myself. I am nervous about new things. I want to learn new things. I want to learn because it can help me after I leave the program so I can get a job. – Tommy
What I did for the summer break was spending time with my family and just chill out and text some of my friends from school. Mostly I spend most of my summer with my uncle doing a lot of busy stuff during the summer break and that’s about it for my summer break.
I will be working at the Central Park mailroom. I’m excited about my coworkers that I will be working with this year. I’m nervous about all the mail and delivering that I’ll be doing at my job. What I want to learn this year is to learn how to ride marta by myself. The reason why I want to be in the Life Program is because I want to improve on my job skills before I start getting a job. – Carlton
I went to New Orleans, Louisiana see my aunts and uncles and cousins. I hung out with Grandma in Thomaston, GA. I did some shopping. I went to my best friend’s wedding. I went skating and bowling. I went to the beach. I went to Wind Down Wednesday in East Point GA. I donated some clothes. I went to homecoming at church. I went to a family banquet.
I am working at Barbara Cox Fitness Center and the Company Store. I am excited about meeting new co workers. I am excited to have wonderful Life teachers to support me. I am nervous about if I have to workout one day in the Fitness Center. I am nervous about making smoothies because I have never done that. I want to learn how to ride Marta by myself. I want to learn how to admit my mistakes when I’m doing something wrong. I want to be in the Life Program to get work experience so I can get a job after the Life Program. I want to accomplish a lot after the Life Program. – Maurice
