In addition, Ms. Kosheleva visited events and explained to high schoolers the importance of safe sex and of getting tested. Ms. Kosheleva’s primary objective was to explore this type of work and her possible place within it.
  • Ms. Kitchener traveled to Nanchang, China and completed her internship at the Jiangxi Normal University in Beijing, where she worked as a professor’s assistant in the public speaking program. The goals of her internship were to better understand how Chinese culture predisposes women to communicate and to study Chinese communication styles. She taught two four-week courses on public speaking.
  • Mr. Rodriguez completed his internship at The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Community Center in New York City. Mr. Rodriguez performed major donor research and coordinated correspondence with the center’s young leaders in order to facilitate fundraising. In addition, he assisted in writing acknowledgement and solicitation letters. Through his work, his goal was to better understand the inner workings of a safe haven for LBGT community members.
