Hello everyone. My name is Tanner Wilson and I am a Criminal Justice major with a minor in Psychology at Appalachian State University. In my last semester of college, I had the honor of being an intern at Hospitality House of Northwest NC. This experience has been absolutely amazing and helped me grow so much. I was able to grow as an individual and gained so many real-life experiences that will help me in the future. The relationships I was able to build with everyone involved are something I will always cherish. Interning here has opened my eyes to challenges that I was ignorant of before. Thankfully now, I am aware of these ongoing challenges and look forward to helping in the future. I would recommend this internship to anyone because of how much it will change your life.

I can not thank Hospitality House enough for giving me the opportunity to intern here this semester. It has been an experience that I will never forget.
