Since all of CLAGS’s staff is part time, we depend upon interns to keep the wheels of the CLAGS locomotive rolling smoothly. Our interns come from a variety of places: some intern with us for college credit, others because they’re dedicated to CLAGS’s mission. We’re welcoming four new interns for the Spring semester: Tamiris Diversi, Allison Silber, Krysten Tom, and Sharika Valerio. Tamiris, our finance intern, has just received a BA in Economics from Dowling College in Oakdale, NY, where she’s been on the Dean’s List for most of her college career. She’s has already dived into helping Jasmina Sinanovic, our Finance Director, processing accounts for our IRN/North America conference. Allison has just graduated from Rutgers University with high honors in History and Political Science. She works as a Genius (!) at the Apple Store in Edison, NJ, and will be working as our events intern with Events and Outreach Co-ordinator, Arianne Benford. Krysten has a BA in English from the University of Southern California and will be starting at CLAGS in January assisting our Development Director, Jasmine Burnett. Finally, Sharika is a Women’s and Gender Studies major at Hunter College, class of 2014. Sharika joins CLAGS to fulfill an internship requirement for her major, and has already done a superb job of organizing the office, supply cabinet, and publications.
Welcome to all our new interns!
