Week 8:
Institute for Exploited, Trafficked and Missing Persons


August 12, 2013 | This final blog post will include my last week as well as my wrap up half week.  I am truly floored at how quickly my summer has gone by.  I have loved every minute regardless of how stressful, scary or frustrating those moments were. Speaking of all three of the adjectives, my event was last […]

Week 7:
Institute for Exploited, Trafficked and Missing Persons


August 9, 2013 | The event seems to be coming at me at 8 billion miles an hour.  There are so many last minute things to do.  I am like a tornado at work office to office in seconds.  Just call me the Flash.  Seriously though everyone is being so supportive and ticket sales are way up which is […]

Week 6:
Institute for Exploited, Trafficked and Missing Persons


August 2, 2013 | Planning this event is starting to take over my every waking moment.  On top of that I am starting to have dreams, nay nightmares, about August 11th.  I really had no idea what sort of work and commitment goes into planning an event like this. It is going to be really cool to see everything […]

Week 5:
Institute for Exploited, Trafficked and Missing Persons


July 25, 2013 | This has been an incredible week here in Minneapolis. Work has been absolutely crazy.  We are really getting close to the event that I have been planning and we have FINALLY decided on a design and marketing strategy.  I had no idea the amount of work, planning, and diplomacy that goes into branding an event […]

Week 4:
Institute for Exploited, Trafficked and Missing Persons


July 15, 2013 | Got back on Saturday night from Chicago and it was an amazing time!  Full of the Blackhawks craziness, my high school mockers and so many friends from Cornell. It was a fun but stressful time and I am glad to be back at work and sleeping in my own bed. There is so much to […]

Week 3:
Institute for Exploited, Trafficked and Missing Persons


July 9, 2013 | This week has been nuts! But in a great way, things have really revved up in regards to my fundraising event and we have started our flagship DMAC. I have also been out and about in the city and will be leaving for two weeks to take advantage of an opportunity in Chicago.  Busy, busy, […]

Week 2:
Institute for Exploited, Trafficked and Missing Persons


June 12, 2013 | Human Rights work isn’t really a 9-5 sort of career. This is becoming evident to me as I work side by side with people who are as passionate about righting the worlds injustices as I am.  At lunch I got into a heated discussion with Rebecca, another intern at the project, and it led to […]

Week 1:
Institute for Exploited, Trafficked and Missing Persons


June 5, 2013 | First weeks are always a whirlwind, and mine was no different.  I arrived in Minneapolis and started work the next day at 8:30am.  Our offices have just been moved and everyone seems very excited about the new space.  My office has a large window with a small yellow bird who likes to keep me company […]
