⛱ This summer, I did a bunch of cool stuff! I held two 6-week internships. I worked as the Athena Entrepreneurship Intern in Barnard's Athena Center for Leadership, where I organized and hosted the 2nd annual Barnard Startup Summit for current & aspiring Barnard entrepreneurs. I also worked as the STEAM Pedagogical Summer Institute Administration Fellow, recruiting teachers for our new cohort of Teacher Fellows, and putting on awesome STEM-related events such as STEM FEST at the Boys and Girls Club of Harlem. After my internships commenced, I headed off into the middle-of-nowhere Massachusetts to serve as Bunk Counselor for two incredible bunks at my childhood sleepaway camp, the most rewarding experience I've had yet!
