“Interning at Anxiety in Teens was a therapeutic experience that enriched my writing, social media and market research skills. It gave me the opportunity to connect with people whom I shared similar experiences with. I felt that I made an impact on teens and parents’ lives through my blog writing as demonstrated by the comments that my posts received” -Katie Ousley, Editorial Intern
