He enjoys modeling and plans to become an ultra sound technician and have his own company. Since interning at UAC, Shyheem has gained interpersonal and professional skills. His moment memorable moment was the UAC Annual Intern Luncheon where he was able to meet and interact with UAC President Sharmain Matlock-Turner. Shyheem’s advice for next year’s interns is “to stay professional, dress to impress, and always smile.”
