Communications Intern

September 2020 - December 2020 Buffalo, NY
“I loved that I was able to work for a nonprofit that is willing to be open to creative ideas and methods to gain more traction to our social media accounts and for people to just learn about our mission. I did not anticipate on having such a major role in creating content for the two projects we had for this semester: International Day of the Girl 2020 and Giving Tuesday 2020.”
