At the Starting Blocks

This semester, I will be interning at the Center for Global Studies alongside veteran intern, Stacy. I am excited to dive into working at the Center and learning all of the steps that go into putting on a successful event. Coming from interning at a nonprofit, I know just how important events are and how difficult it can be to put on a well-run event. At the end of this semester, I hope to have gained a greater understanding and appreciation for panels, screenings, and discussions that many of us, on the other side of the curtain, take for granted.

Not only do I hope to learn these organizational and planning skills, but also to further develop my communication skills, whether spoken, written, or visual. In my experience, I wish to contribute with my abilities in social media, global awareness, and genuine interest. I look forward to working on the upcoming events and hopefully putting together one of my own.
