Meet Skylight Intern Damani Barnes



College: Ashland University

Why did you want to intern at Skylight?

After meeting Mr. Fichter at my school's career fair, I decided that I would like to be surrounded by people that are willing to not only help with your professional career, but also grow as a person.

Tell us something you are really good at?

I feel like I do a great job at making people feel comfortable around me. Effectively communicating and actively engaging in conversation. 

A fun fact about you:

Not to toot my own horn but I can take naps like nobody's business. I consider myself to like a wide range of music. Also competed as a varsity athlete for my University. 

Your favourite place to hang out in Cleveland or Columbus:

In Cleveland, I love going to the Jack Casino to play poker. In Columbus, Barnes and Noble and the Arena District. 

What do you like to do in your spare time?

Going to the gym is one my favorite ways to pass time. Also volunteering at the dog shelter is enjoyable. 

What’s the most adventurous thing you’ve ever done?

Well, I took more than one sample of food at grocery store before so I have that going for me. But other than that, going snowboarding is about as adventurous as I get. 

Who would you most like to meet – alive or dead?

Scott Stahl- Co-Founder of the non profit organization “Make-A-Wish” Foundation 

Where do you want to be 10 years from now?

Financially stable, married, a father and in a position to help others.
