Class of 2014
Bachelor of Arts, Sociology
Saint Louis University
My experience at Southside has been wonderful so far. I look forward to coming each day and knowing that I am going to learn something new. I feel like I am helping Krysta, the Family Partnership Manager, who has had a large workload. Getting to know the kids in this program has been my favorite aspect of the experience.
During fall 2014, Azra participated in the Scholarship Foundation’s paid Community Internship Program, a collaborative partnership between the Foundation, Equifax and community agencies.
Azra recently graduated from Saint Louis University with a bachelor’s degree in sociology. She interned with Southside Early Childhood Center. She coordinated getting parental consent forms and was lead implementer for Healthy Kids Express, which provided children in Early Head Start and Head Start with hearing, vision, lead, and hemoglobin tests, flu shots, and dental exams. Her work now turns to reviewing and following-up on families’ needs assessments and connecting them with resources, including children’s winter coats. Finally, she will begin preparing for annual holiday events.
