(LifeSiteNews) — Have you heard of LifeSite internships? Well, in this special episode of The John-Henry Westen Show, you will hear from a former LifeSite intern and now a full-time employee in our video department, who shares his incredible story.
Alejandro Rodriguez explained his journey from being a philosophy major to a highly-talented devout Christian fighting on the frontlines of the battle for life, family, faith, and culture. He encouraged all the young people to consider joining this battle today.
Alejandro detailed how the internship program was “an amazing experience” to grow in the faith and a spiritual life with Jesus Christ.
“One of the key words that we kind of clicked on was that we were here for God,” he said. “We were here for the faith, and no matter what God was calling us to, we would do that for Him and for Him alone.”
We also discussed how the internship has helped him in his professional development as a full-time member of the video department. Alejandro spoke about the importance of learning from mentors, sharing creative ideas, and said “listening to each other” is key.
Alejandro called on everyone “to be open to the will of God,” and to not be close-minded about career and educational goals. “There’s always something to learn, no matter how long you’ve been in school, no matter how long you’ve been in your specific career, there’s always something for you to learn,” he added.
Finally, Alejandro mentioned the beautiful experiences of peer-to-peer interaction and close friendships that the internship helped develop and maintain beyond the duration of the program. He said that former interns continue to grow in the faith in “a little alumni chat that we go around and share little tidbits from what we learned each day.”
