Sample speech for sharing your experience during the internship in school, special school, ngo, etc.
Good Morning. I am Waheed from Aitchison College, and today I’ll be sharing my experience in this institute with all of you. But first of all I would like to thank all the AHF staff, and my fellow volunteers for considering me as a part of the AHF family.
As Sarah Palin has said,” Sometimes even the greatest joys bring challenge, and children with special needs inspire a very very special love.”
This is my second time working, and serving for the AHF, and the children’s love, and innocence is what brought me back here.
I still remember the first day of my internship. Having a little knowledge about the institute, and a little confidence enforced into me by the teachers I actively participated in all the activities with the special children, and even on the very first day it felt like their love for me was at its pinnacle which made me feel like I wasn’t returning enough for what I was receiving. The expression of joy on their faces from the little activities we did was more than satisfying for me. It felt like for the first time I had accomplished something on my own.
The best thing about these kids was that they taught me more than I could teach them. My time at the senior section was the most enlightening for me. I came across brothers who were older than me but were as innocent as a 3year old kid but I later understood that their understanding of their surroundings was actually that of a five to seven year old. I spent a great deal of time with them, and I felt that I bonded with them in many aspects. I believe socially accepting them would not only bring comfort to them but would also bring happiness to the society! They are a great gift for us, and are blessed in their very own way.
The junior section was the actual definition of angels on Earth. The CP section was yet another lesson to never give up for me. I came across kids who were disabled physically, and mentally. I couldn’t help but be astonished at how our troubles were nothing in front of their struggles.
And now I’ve come to know that indeed special children are given to special families. I salute their determination, and I assure you that their determination would easily defeat the normal people in our society because they are called special for a reason. Thank you.
