Interning with AS – Thank You!
By Sam Mendez
Austin Smiles and their mission are truly an amazing thing to be able to be a part of. This organization and all the people who make it possible are amazing at what they do. Austin Smiles piqued my interest very early on in grad school, and I have done many projects on their work. Now, it is an honor to be able to intern with them.
Recently, I had the pleasure of attending and volunteering at the 36th Annual Wish Upon a Smile Gala. I was in awe at the number of attendees who come and be a part of this organization and their mission. Every individual I socialized with spoke so highly of Austin Smiles, Renee, Ellise, and all the work they do to continue helping the cleft communities of Central Texas and Latin America. I love being a part of Austin Smiles and am excited for what their future holds!
