Describe your responsibilities as an intern
I was in charge of a weekly newsletter that highlighted stories surrounding migration along the Southern U.S. border. I also worked with two of my co-workers on a infographic over the course of the internship on the "Remain in Mexico" policy, and attended a variety of Latin America focused events across the D.C. metroplex to take notes and represent the organization.
