Meet Our Summer Interns: Betsy

Hello! My name is Betsy and I am excited to be a summer intern this year! I am 21 years old and currently am a student at Cerritos College. I have been a native of Bellflower since 2010 and a member of Rosewood Church in Bellflower almost my whole life. I used to live in Paramount where I grew up an only child. A few things that I enjoy are; running, shopping, reading books and being with my friends and family. I love being active and out of the house a lot, you can probably find me at Starbucks with my friends almost every end of the week.

I have participated in many of my church’s activities including a youth group called “Serve,” that I was in for 5 years straight every summer. Serve in a nutshell is a type of ministry that brings together youth from all over the U.S including Canada in one church for a week and serve the community in a way that gives you the opportunity to get closer to God through worshipping, Bible studies, to fun day outs in groups with people that love Jesus. Anyways, ever since the first serve trip 5 years ago which took place in Ensenada Mexico, given I didn’t know anyone, I was extremely out of my comfort zone, but ever since that time I’ve been inspired to help people and join activities for a cause. “Whatever you do, whether in word or in deed do it for God.” Colossians 3:17

All in all this year will be a different type of summer, I am going to be coordinating and teaching a summer art class – for which I am so excited! I am happy I got this opportunity I will try my best, I know it will be a summer of learning and growing and I am ready for it!
