Here is our very Californian "What's Your Passion" self-discovery exercise for you.

Let your gut tell you instinctively - YES!  or  NOOOOOO!
If you really aren't definitively tipping in one direction, I DON"T KNOW  and  MAYBE are okay answers too.

Be totally honest with yourself. There are a lot of questions here to help you find what sings to you.

Answer EVERY question mark in your head, not just each line item. In case something specific sticks out to you you can put it in the Comments / Notes section at the bottom.

IT TAKES ALL KINDS TO MAKE A WORLD - and thank goodness otherwise how boring and how stuck we would be!  There are no wrong answers here. No trick questions. Answer truthfully and you'll get every one right.

First, we ask, every intern...

Do you know what do you love to do? ...

The way we define how to know what you LOVE to do, is by telling us where time flies for you?
This is a win-win, because we find long-term partners for the charity, if we tap into what you love to do :)

Next, we ask

Do you know what you really DON'T like to do?  Where does time drag for you? We especially don't want to place you in a project that is far from your passion.
