We are excited to announce our new interns!
We began providing internship opportunities for students in 2013. In 2017, we intentionally designated one of our internship positions specifically for Black students, Indigenous students, and students of color to increase racial diversity in philanthropy in Middle Tennessee. This year, Megan Davis and Fozia Mohamed will join our team for the fall and spring semesters.
Megan is a first-year Master of Public Health student at Vanderbilt University on the Global Health track. She moved to Nashville in 2017 from Knoxville to earn a bachelor’s degree in Health Science at Tennessee State University. Megan wants to dedicate her life to reducing health disparities and aiding underserved communities. She has worked with smaller nonprofits as well as larger academic institutions.
Fozia is pursuing a master’s degree at TSU in Public Administration. She is from Somalia but grew up in Pakistan, where she completed her bachelor’s degree in Development Studies. Fozia immigrated to the U.S. in 2015 and has worked in the nonprofit sector. She has worked as a Somali Interpreter/Translator with the United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), and her goal is to strengthen her knowledge and skills in public management, policy-making, and the nonprofit sector.
We look to welcoming both ladies at the end of August. Click here for more information on our internship program.
