Silvia Arora and Charles Sanky were the head of North High School's class of 2012.

This summer, he is getting financial experience with his internship for Instinet LLC in Manhattan, an institutional brokerage firm. He enjoys seeing how the business operates and finds going to work every day a great experience. “It’s a chance to witness the daily routines of future career options,” Sinko said. As the clearing and settlement intern, he prepares contracts, files forms and contacts clients, acquiring important skills that he will need in the future. He has also been playing sports with his friends, biking with his father and spending some time relaxing at home before returning to school.

Silvia Arora graduated at the top of Valley Stream North High School’s class last year and is now attending Dartmouth College. Her major is currently undecided but she is interested in medicine and considering double majoring in biology and Spanish. She said she loves New Hampshire and had a wonderful freshman experience participating in peer education training and researching the West Antarctic ice sheet.

This summer, Arora is working with Planned Parenthood of Nassau County with funding from Dartmouth to do a 40-hour-per-week service internship. In addition to being trained in HIV counseling and testing, she helps in the recovery room, works with public affairs and does Spanish translating in the health center. Arora said she is enjoying her internship and “being involved with the political and medical aspects of women’s health and reproductive services.”
