We want to welcome our 2015 summer interns to the staff! They won't be starting until June, but we extend our congratulations to Nick Farr and Ambra Prescott!
Nick Farr will be our Graphic Design Intern this summer. He is currently a senior at Berea College, where he is majoring in Technology and Applied Design with a minor in Computer Science. Nick helped establish the Secular Students of Berea College a year and a half ago, and has also provided the graphic design for this group.
"I would love to do professional design work for the people, organizations, and numerous other things in this world that I care about. I feel that from this internship, I would have a great start in getting closer to that goal," Nick said of his expectations about working with the Secular Student Alliance this summer.
Ambra Prescott will be our Writing Intern this summer. She is currently a sophomore at Bowling Green State University, where she is pursuing her Bachelor of Arts in Communications. Ambra is also President of the Secular Student Alliance at BGSU, where her main goals for her affiliate group include providing a safe space for secular students, advocacy, and service.
When asked why she was interested in working for the SSA, Ambra stated, "My greatest satisfaction has always been found when I am helping people. I want a career that enables me to do that while being openly secular. Nothing would make me happier than to continue helping others in the secular community, and I would love to work with an organization specifically to help secular people."
Together, Nick and Ambra will be revising our Group Running Guide. Since July 2014, we have sent out 77 Group Running Guides, and we're looking forward to improving it so that we can continue to offer high quality advice to our student leaders.
