Hello! My name is Nikita Beenunula, I am Junior Mass Communications major. I have been working with H.E.L.P since October and I have learned so much from the experience. I joined the team with the help of Emory & Henry College. I have been working as a communications assistant with Director, Beth Hilton. Together we have completed brochures, newsletters, improving this website, and she even helped me make it possible to shoot the video below about the program. I enjoyed getting to experience first hand what this program does for the community of Southwest Virginia, I went to Meadowview Elementary school and the kids were so involved and willing to learn I fell in love with them immediately. Working with H.E.L.P has been an adventure and I would not change one thing because it has taught me valuable communications skills, real life experience, and I got to improve on things I already knew as well. This program has given me the opportunity to feel more comfortable out in the real world and more confident in my skills.
