Talent Show...and More

  The UCP/CLASS talent show was today and it was a success. I sang “Stop Draggin’ My Heart Around” by Stevie Nicks. I felt kind of nervous at first, but we all had fun. I’m planning to sing in the talent show again next year and I am thinking about performing a John Denver song.   I’m going downtown tomorrow for a meeting about ACCESS

As I continue to fulfill the hours of my field placement here at UCP, I feel that I need to be grateful for the way in which my internship is progressing. I began my internship with prior knowledge to the agency, its clients and the manner in which services are provided. It was also due to my past experiences with the agency that I have built relationships which has ensured that I had no issues becoming integrated into the workings of the process of operations.

My Time So Far

    After returning to United Cerebral palsy for the first time in many years, I am surprised at how much of the agency is still familiar to me. My name is Tyrone Scales and after putting in several weeks of time here for my Social Work internship at the University of Pittsburgh, I am pleased to see the agency that I grew up with continue to empower some of our most overlooked fellow citizens.

Computer Class

Starting this semester, I have been attending a computer class every Tuesday with Bill M.  So far, I have really enjoyed this class. Although I cannot use my hands to help me navigate the system, I have an assistant who helps me use the computer. Bill has taught me and the rest of the class how to use different programs on the computer, as well as how to print documents. The other day the class and I learned how to look up information on the internet. I decided to look up facts on the Americans with Disabilities Act or the ADA.

The New Year

  Now I know Christmas has yet to arrive, but I can’t help but to think of the New Year with all of its fun festivities, like eating sauerkraut, Kabassi,  and mashed potatoes, and making resolutions. While sometimes it’s hard to get out for New Year’s Eve, I always make the effort to have fun. This year I hope to see the new Muppets movie out in theaters with my family. I’m not sure if it’s possible for my family to drive all the way to Pittsburgh to visit me, but either way, I plan on enjoying the New Year with people I care about.
