Q: What inspired you to work in child development?
“I have always wanted to work with kids in a medical setting, but I never wanted to poke-and-prod them or hurt them. So, I ruled out surgery, and I was looking into nursing, but they still need to give them IVs and stuff, and I am not comfortable with that. So when I heard of this in my child development class, I was like, ‘This is what I need to do. This is perfect.’ So, I started to look it up and figure out all of the schools that offer it. I was like, ‘OK, I can do this.’ Then this little girl that I babysat, she got cancer last year, and the child life specialist that had been working with her was really great with her, and that determined where in the hospital I want to work. So, I want to work in oncology.”
-Savannah Boyd, Child Development, Sophomore
Q: What advice would you give to students just starting school?
“Make a difference. Figure out which way you want your career to go and, more important, what kind of difference you want to make. There are a lot of different outlooks on life, and you can always influence anything.”
-Michael Riding, Health Science, Senior
Q: What’s your favorite thing on the menu?
“That’s not fair! I love it all! Karie Anne’s is defiantly the best place to snack in Rexburg. I try and come here at least 2 times a week. Sometimes I run here from my apartment!”
Q: What the longest time you ever spent away from this place?
“My internship. I went to California and ended up going without this goodness for like 6 months! It was the worst thing ever! There were places like this out there but nothing could stack up to Karie Anne’s”
