ďWorking with children is one of my passions,Ē she said. ďI am a 24-year old and only 2.5 years in my career. I donít have that many years of experience, but thus far I would have to say the most important choices Iíve made are that Iíve found mentors. I think itís important to have a mentor at all stages of your career because they can provide great insight on issues that you are not familiar with,Ē Lewter said.
ďIíve also made the choice to take on roles and duties that challenge me. Of course itís easy to take the job that is less stressful but why not challenge yourself? Take on a role that will in the end, help you to grow and prepare you for the next stages in your career. It will prove to be very beneficial in the long run.Ē
