*At the Charlotte airport right now on my way to Williamsburg VA for the Women's Summit at William & Mary college.*
This week has been the busiest and the best week I've had at Carnegie Mellon for a few reasons.
1. I interviewed for a consulting company called Inspiring Capital, which consults for non-profits, and got accepted into their internship program!! I really wanted this because it's such rewarding work to help non-profit organizations to prosper and I want to do consulting after college, and I'm so happy. I haven't been this happy in so long. :') So I finally know what I'm doing this summer. It's 10 weeks, so I'll even still have a couple weeks to visit Canada after:)) @julialamb coming for you!
2. I organized my first philanthropy event! Inspired by Julia's, Lexy's, and my eighth? ninth? grade French class fundraiser, with help from Allison's artistic skills, I planned a cotton candy sale to raise money for our Greek Sing philanthropy Camp Kesem. Camp Kesem is a student run organization that supports children whose families have been affected by cancer. We raised over $700 from the 4 or so hours we were selling(!!) and it was really fun. It's happening again next Thursday when it'll be warmer out so hopefully we can be just as successful. Donate to our crowdrise! :
3. We had a really successful opening night to the CMU Intl. Film Festival yesterday (Thursday) night. The interns all did a little performance piece choreographed by Javier, a sophomore drama student, which was kind of scary, but super fun. Check out the schedule for our upcoming film screenings:
