Story:

This summer (2018) I had the opportunity to work with Becky's Fund, a DC-based domestic violence awareness and prevention nonprofit, thanks to the generosity of the Boehnen Family and their Gender Studies Internship Grant Fund. At Becky's Fund, I helped update and redesign our websites, created and taught lessons on topics such as masculinity and sexual assault to teenage boys, completed grant applications, and made informational materials for events. It was a great experience that allowed me to do a lot of different kinds of work in a variety of areas.

I look forward to this coming year, where I can apply what I have learned to my studies to help me get the most out of my final year at Notre Dame.
