Social Work InternMy name is Sakiya Darden. I earned my BSW in 2016 from North Carolina Central University located in Durham, NC. During the BSW program, I gained experience while working with older adults and families within a rehabilitation and transitional care facility. I also volunteered at homeless shelters assisting children in after school tutoring programs. In November of 2017, I was accepted into the MSW program at Walden University. I began the program in February of 2018 with a concentration in medical/healthcare social work. In this program I am continuouslyseeking the ultimate experience and education in expanding my social work skills and learning more about what it takes to be a social work professional. Along with an interest in medical social work, mental health is important to me as well. I feel that although our physical health is important, our mental health is just as important. As a social work intern with MBS Restorative Centre, I am eager to learnand engage in all aspects of this experience in order to gain the knowledge necessary to better understand the importance of selfcare and mental health.
