Hello! My name is Rachab Abdie and I am excited to be working at Becky’s Fund as a new Student Intern. I’m from Downtown Silver Spring, Maryland and I go to Villanova University just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. I am majoring in Liberal Arts and am going to start graduate school at the University of Maryland in the Spring Semester. Next June, I plan to start the application process for medical school.
I have always wanted to be a part of an organization that really helps the community. Becky’s Fund is a wonderful opportunity prior to my career as a physician because of the fact that many different kinds of patients come through the hospital doors. Knowing how to talk, respond and handle these types of situations takes a lot of experience and learning. I don’t want to be naïve and think that just because I don’t see it, it is not really happening or that it could never happen to me. I want to learn so I’m a better professional for myself and for my future patients. I am excited to gain knowledge on Domestic Violence and learn more about the ins and outs of a nonprofit organization.
