Work Experience

Work Experience
National Endowment for the Humanities, Challenge Grants Intern
2019 - 2019
I reviewed grant applications from humanities institutions and participated in evaluation panels to decide which applications would receive grants. I interviewed past grant recipients to publicize their projects and promote the Challenge Grants program through a web feature and a video.
Barón Family Health Center, Promotion and Participation Intern
2018 - 2018
I filmed and edited an independent mini-documentary detailing the community efforts to recuperate an abandoned police station for public use. I applied for and received Middlebury College’s Sustainable Study Abroad Grant to buy supplies for the clean-up of a degraded public space. I coordinated with community organizers to plan a Spring Festival to strengthen social ties between residents and rehabilitate the area for community use.
Concordia Language Villages, Spanish Immersion Counselor
2017 - 2018
I taught Spanish to “villagers” aged 6-18 in a complete language immersion setting by leading athletic and cultural activities popular in Spanish-speaking countries to foster cross-cultural acceptance. As the head blogger, I wrote daily blog posts, took photos and selected media to publish on the camp website covering activities and their cultural significance.
City of Clayton, Swim Instructor
