Three times a year, we get to welcome new faces and talent into the NINO office! This fall semester, we have four interns helping our staff in Chapel Hill. Check them out below:
Leslie Floyd is a junior at UNC Chapel Hill. She is double majoring in public relations and economics. This summer she interned at the NC Sustainable Energy Association, helping to promote clean energy development and energy efficiency practices across North Carolina. She is excited to learn more about international development and to be working for an organization that promotes community engagement and entrepreneurship.
Claire Lynch is a sophomore at UNC Chapel Hill. Claire is double majoring in Spanish and global studies with a focus in economics in the Latin American region. This past summer she studied abroad in Sevilla, Spain where she took classes on worldwide immigration and Spanish business practices. While there she was fortunate enough to travel around Europe on the weekends. She is also a member of the Carolina Women in Business Club and hopes to learn more about the business side of a nonprofit. She is proud to be a part of Nourish because of its noble mission to engage students to diminish worldwide poverty.
Colin Stifler graduated with a degree in philosophy from Miami University (OH) in 2014. In the almost two and a half years since, Colin has traveled to 18 countries and lived for extended periods in both China and South Korea while teaching English and working with local government. These experiences have set his focus on working to improve the lives of those affected by economic inequality and generating greater awareness of such issues amongst young Americans. In his role as development intern, Colin is excited to work closely with the executive director to meet fundraising goals and contribute to an organization that shares his values!
Lindsey Warburton is a senior at UNC Chapel Hill. She is double majoring in global studies and Spanish. She studied abroad in Lima, Peru. There she took classes at the university while also being immersed in Peruvian culture. She is a student leader in the Episcopal Campus Ministry, which has given her the opportunity to travel to Nicaragua and to volunteer with organizations such as the Episcopal Farmworker’s Ministry and the Carolina Campus Community Gardens. Lindsey is excited to learn more about international development and how Nourish International can affect change in the world.
A warm welcome to these young changemakers! Thank you for your interest in and commitment to Nourish!
