NC Child

Summer Intern

June - August 2018 • Raleigh, NC

What I liked

I loved the people and the atmosphere in which I was surrounded. Everyone I worked with was extremely kind and forthcoming with information, and I never felt like I didn't belong somewhere. I loved being directly a part of something bigger and knowing that my work was being appreciated and readily used to help convey our message.

What I wish was different

I wish the overall program I interned under described each internship better. NC Child was not what I expected, but I mean this in a positive way.


I would tell anyone interning through NPIP to branch out when choosing places that interest you and keep an open mind. I wasn't a very political person before I was accepted into this program, but my nonchalancy toward politics, specifically in North Carolina, drastically shifted by the end of my internship. I would also advise to keep pushing past rejection. I applied to many places and was rejected multiple times before being offered the NC Child internship, and I honestly believe that there was no better way for me to have spent my summer.
