  • “I was able to hone my interpersonal skills and learned to have open communication with the Long Beach Forward staff members. I used to be very shy and unsure of how to be myself around others. I have noticed that I am more open to communicating my ideas and feelings. LBF provided a safe space where I developed my skills and even improved the way I saw myself.” - 2020 Intern
  • “Working at LB Forward will inevitably give you a voice. For those that are shy and introverted, there will be a project that will bring out the activist in you. I would challenge them to when in doubt express yourself. Every space that I have been in has allowed creative expression that pertains to the topics.” - 2020 Intern
