You Are Viewing Asha (Intern)
It is with great excitement that we welcome Asha Carter, our first Development Intern, to the QWOC+ Boston family! We first met Asha at our spring social last year, and then right at the end of QWOC Week, when she confessed that she’d been sizing us up via our last intern’s blog posts and bursts of excitement on Facebook. Apparently, we made the cut! She applied to be our intern this year, and we couldn’t be any more thrilled to have her.
This spring, plan on hearing from Asha via our bi-weekly newsletters, blog posts, and of course Facebook and Twitter! She’ll be helping us get ready for the summer by putting together our Spring Social (during which we recruit brand new volunteers for 2011), and blazing the trail as the lead coordinator of our first Youth Development Weekend in May!
Here are a few words from Asha:
Hey, everybody!! My name is Asha, and I’m a sophomore at Wellesley College. I was born and raised in Atlanta, GA. I’m a Peace and Justice Studies major, with a concentration in Urban Development and Sustainability. I spend a lot of time working on youth outreach, but when I’m not doing that, I sing, dance, act, and spend *way too much* time with my close friends. I’m bubbly, I love kids, and meeting and talking to new people feeds me like nothing else.
I’ve met a wide range of people in the first two decades of my life, but the more I learn, the more I realize how much is left to know–a daunting, but thrilling discovery to make. I’m really looking forward to working with QWOC+ Boston, and having a fantastic semester!
Please join us in welcoming Asha! *applause applause* Leave her a comment of encouragement, wisdom, warning, or warm welcome
