AFS Person I look up to most: My old boss Steely

Reason I chose to intern at AFS: I was first attracted to AFS because I really love the town of A2, but what made me fall in love with it was how well Mike really treats his employees. He returned my phone call the very next day and told me, after talking with me on the phone for three minutes, that my positive energy was great and that he would love to set up an interview with me the next week. I don’t receive that quality of interaction from any other site that I had contacted and it really impressed me in a positive way.

Reason I chose to intern at AFS: The focus of my hobbies growing up were fitness and nutriton, both of which were emphasized as very important in my household growing up.

I found that the values of AFS matched my own, and I knew AFS would be the right place for me
