Week 8–A Last All Staff Meet & Lots of Homework


Johnston Fellow in Non-profit Outreach

Bread for the World | Washington, D.C.

July 28, 2016 | The realization of how soon my internship with Bread for the World will end came with my last All Staff Meeting this week. It was nice to see everyone get together and discuss future plans of the organization, plans that I sadly won’t be able to witness. Overall, I got a bittersweet feeling. It was […]

Week 8:
Personal Puppets!


July 26, 2016 | This past week was devoted to working on my personal project. I set out to create a couple of hand puppets exploring and putting into practice the art of character creation and design.     After I finished up Anise, the other studio apprentice and I went to the fabric district south of Times Square […]

Week 10:
Race to Beta


Platner Fellow in Web Services Engineering

Psymposia, LLC | Baltimore, Maryland

July 26, 2016 | This last week was a literal sprint to Beta. Mike and I sketched out data structures at least five hours each day. While I continued to add features and fix bugs, Mike migrated content from the old site to the new one. Spending so much time continuously focused on this project has been very rewarding! […]

Week 6:
Learning, Learning, and Networking


Becker Fellow in Research

University of Chicago Medical Center | Chicago, Illinois

July 26, 2016 | This week I learned quite a few new lab techniques that I did not have any previous knowledge or experience with. First, Danuta and I worked on sectioning brains from the rats which were nasally administered fluorescent microspheres over the past weekend. Six hours after the rats are treated with the microspheres they are humanely […]

Week 8:
PBS and DIEPV


Arthur Vining Davis Fellow in Biological Sciences and Entomology

University of Georgia Department of Entomology | Athens, Georgia

July 26, 2016 | In the last couple of weeks, I determined that hemocyte counts were lower in parasitized larvae than unparasitized larvae. The next step was to determine the reason as to why hemocytes were lower in parasitized larvae than unparasitized larvae. To determine this, hemocytes were counted from unparasitized larvae, PBS injected larvae, and DIEPV injected larvae. […]

Week 5:
JESS talk


July 26, 2016 | This week I continued my work on the weight medication study. It took the whole week to finish matching all the sheets of paper and files with the correct subject files. About a third of the way through this project I began to organize the unmatched files and paper more efficiently. After I did this […]

Week 10:
The Concept of Free Time


Slater Fellow in Theatrical Development

Creede Repertory Theatre | Creede, Colorado

July 25, 2016 | Something very strange happened for me this week in the tiny town of Creede, Colorado: I found myself having free time. You see, for the first time since the day I started here, I am no longer in a rehearsal process.  Between Watson, Dirty Rotten Scoundrels, and Rodeo and Juliet, I was spending my days at […]

Week 7:
Lots of Preparations


Arthur Vining Davis Fellow in Pharmacology

University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine | Iowa City, Iowa

July 25, 2016 | I spent a lot of time this week developing the poster for the symposium. When it comes to presenting information on research, the key challenge is trying to figure out how you can use the data you have generated to tell a story. This has led to filter back through former studies to see how I can piece […]

Week 7—A Great Group & a Cool Interview


Johnston Fellow in Non-profit Outreach

Bread for the World | Washington, D.C.

July 25, 2016 | Highlights of the sixth week included coordinating a new group visit to our organization for our Offering of Letters campaign and getting to interview Bread’s Director of Government Relations who leads the work in developing and articulating Bread’s positions on policy, legislative goals, and lobbying strategies for achieving its goals with Congress and the administration. […]

Week 4:
Anxiety Workshop


Arthur Vining Davis Fellow in Clinical Psychology

University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics | Iowa City, Iowa

July 25, 2016 | Last week my work on REVIVE, the weight loss medication study, was stalled due to waiting for permission from the PI. On Monday I got permission to go into medical records database and look into clinical note for the demographic information we need. By Wednesday I had finished all of this and began on another […]
