“The world will not come to you. The only way you learn what you love is by not being afraid to take chances.”

Selene L.
Department of Economic Security,
Division of Developmental Disabilities Intern

Overcoming obstacles in life is nothing new to Selene, for she certainly has had her share and then some. Though she faces challenges every day with Cerebral Palsy, she is not one to dwell on it. Currently at Phoenix College, she’s majoring in Business and still finds time to be an intern with the Department of Economic Security. She calls it her “once in a lifetime opportunity to work with people with disabilities and help them get services.” As she puts it, “You never know what life is ahead of you, so take the opportunity to gain skills and share them with others – it will surely make a difference in their lives and yours, too.”
