Why I’m interning at LSSND: Being a part of non-profit organizations as a career has always been my goal and LSS is one of the most influential organizations that I wanted to apply my school knowledge within to help the community as well as learn from the immense expertise and diverse employees in it.
Goals for this internship: Know more about the field of Emergency Management within non-profit entities as well as familiarize myself with other humanitarian affairs sections within the organization.
Other goals: I’m hoping to finish my undergraduate degree then earn a masters degree in International Relations/ Public Policy and work with an International Nonprofit Organization as a part of their Humanitarian Affairs Team.
