​​Now a senior, Rozas is putting her business skills to work during her internship at Camp Fire National Headquarters, where she is working to promote the upcoming Absolutely Incredible Kid Day, a national initiative held in 2021 on March 18.

“The holiday is 100% about encouraging children with words of affirmation”, Rozas says. The initiative serves as an annual reminder to tell the kids in our lives why they are important by writing, texting, and posting affirmations on social media.

Rozas credits her professor, NCFR member Janeal M. White, M.S., CFLE, for her success not just through classroom learning, but by placing her in an internship that catered to her strengths and passions.
