Overview of the project they are working on right now that includes the impact the project is making.

My overall role for CU is just being available and ready to help with any tasks thrown my way. I started out researching grants for CU. Followed by doing travel logistics for CU fellows whole CU DC was still happening. I was then asked to come up with new ideas for the CU community. I had the idea of connecting our Fellows with organizations for internships, we needed something more realistic so the team and I decided to move for with having our very own CU interns. I am now currently helping out with organizing our CU Juneteenth event.
