one intern's story
As we grow the scope of what we do here at PW, the team with which we do so grows as well. Mia Mckay is just one of our incredible interns that we asked to write about her experience as part of the pennywise family. Below are her words:
"I am grateful to work with the Pennywise Foundation because I am continuously inspired by the people and organizations I work with. One of my favorite experiences while working here was conducting interviews with some of our partners because I had the opportunity to hear about personal stories and feel more connected to the communities we help. For example, seeing pictures and having a conversation about how Roberto’s Kids has provided sports equipment for underprivileged youth around the world allowed me to learn more about the heart of why they do what they do. Working as the administrative intern, I have also learned so much about the operations and policies that go into running a nonprofit by attending the Board of Directors meetings. I continue to be inspired by the other interns who show so much talent, passion, and creativity in their work and Liz and Laura who bring so much excitement and dedication into even the smallest administrative tasks."
Thank you, Mia, we totally agree!
All of our staff here at Pennywise work to contribute to the blog, either as an author, behind the scenes researcher, or just someone to bounce ideas off of! We hope you enjoy our collaborative and creative collection of work.
