Week 6:
Martha


Ringgenberg Fellow in Housing Justice

Willis Dady Homeless Services | Cedar Rapids, Iowa

July 5, 2020 | A picture of the film ft. coffee and headphones. It has been a week of wrapping up loose ends, getting B-roll of Cedar Rapids, conducting interviews with staff, and meeting with my supervisor to discuss and check-in about the editing process. The editing bit can be the most difficult – for days I dealt with […]

Week 4:
Testing My Growth


Jon & Jean Reynolds Fellow in Prosthetics & Orthotics

Maughan Prosthetic & Orthotic | Silverdale, Washington

July 5, 2020 | Four weeks done and four more to go! We had a very busy week at the office wanting to deliver the projects we were working on to give patients the opportunity for a more mobile Fourth of July. For me, this meant there was a lot to learn and a chance to show my growth. […]

Week 4:
Hitting a Speed Bump


Mathews Fellow in Legal Immigration Services

Justice For Our Neighbors | Austin, Texas

July 5, 2020 | This week it has felt a little bit like I hit a wall. Maybe that is not quite right because I do not feel completely halted. Maybe it would be more appropriate to say I feel like I have hit a speed bump on my internship journey. I say this because 1) I had loads […]

Week 4:
Halfway There


Rogers Fellow in Environmental Studies

Coastal Ecology & Conservation Lab, University of South Carolina Beaufort | Beaufort, South Carolina

July 3, 2020 | This week marks the halfway point of my summer here in Beaufort, and it was the best week yet! With most of the materials finally having been delivered to the lab, Lindsey and I got to really dig into sampling. The first couple of times, Dr. Pettay went with us to our two sampling locations […]

Week 4-5:
Break from Filming


Ringgenberg Fellow in Housing Justice

Willis Dady Homeless Services | Cedar Rapids, Iowa

June 28, 2020 | So I needed to undergo surgery last week so it’s been a moment since I updated this blog; I’ve been in recovery for about a week now, and will be starting to film again next week. It has been a timeless week filled with pain medication, antibiotics and sleep. Meant to work on this blog […]

Week 3:
Best of Both Worlds


Mathews Fellow in Legal Immigration Services

Justice For Our Neighbors | Austin, Texas

June 27, 2020 | Wow! Another week has already gone by and I cannot believe it. When Monday comes around, usually, I think it will take forever to be Friday. But here everything flies by. Perhaps it is because I am so immersed in my work. I am learning so much, it could be that I actually enjoy what […]

Week 3:
A Full Week


Rogers Fellow in Environmental Studies

Coastal Ecology & Conservation Lab, University of South Carolina Beaufort | Beaufort, South Carolina

June 27, 2020 | This week was simultaneously full of work, relaxation, and exploration. We of course continued setting up and organizing the lab as materials kept coming in, but we also got to begin the exciting work of learning how to collect and analyze water samples.  We were able to go down to the local waterfront, collect data […]

Week 3:
Flourishing in Washington


Jon & Jean Reynolds Fellow in Prosthetics & Orthotics

Maughan Prosthetic & Orthotic | Silverdale, Washington

June 27, 2020 | My third week has come to a close and it feels like my first day at MPO was only yesterday. Time really does fly when you are having fun. I am building a strong foundation of knowledge and understanding in prosthetics and orthotics and am becoming more competent in the office. I truly believe that […]

Week 2:
Learning as I Go


Jon & Jean Reynolds Fellow in Prosthetics & Orthotics

Maughan Prosthetic & Orthotic | Silverdale, Washington

June 21, 2020 | Hello again! As I write this I am sitting at a picnic table in the beautiful Manchester State Park. To my left I can see the forest with many trails hiding between the trees. To my right is the Rich Passage, a popular place for ferries to pass by. I could not pick a better […]

Week 2:
Career Confirmation


Mathews Fellow in Legal Immigration Services

Justice For Our Neighbors | Austin, Texas

June 21, 2020 | Wow! My experience in Austin so far has been amazing and I am learning so much. The experiences I have already had in these past two weeks are really assuring that this is the career path I want to take to being an immigration attorney. Everyone in the office has been so kind and open […]
