Meet Our High School Interns!

It’s summer and that means a few things for DoSomething.org: kickball, bake-offs and summer interns! We have a total of 35 interns AND five of them are still in high school. These high-schoolers are amazeballs. Why? Well for starters, they’ve traveled across the country, and for some, world, to be here with us. Check them out below:

Bertie King, High School Members Intern:         

                                                                            

How would you describe yourself in three adjectives?

Quiet, calm, and lucky.

Discrimination. There's no reason why people should be treated differently.

I was born in Thailand.

 

Victoria Liu, High School Marketing Intern:

How would you describe yourself in three adjectives?

Dramatic, diligent, and easygoing.

Physical and mental health, because it can affect anyone.

Alexandra Sukin, High School Writing Intern:

How would you describe yourself in three adjectives?

Adventurous, fun and fashionable.

What cause are you most passionate about? Why?

Illegal immigration. It is cruel to split families apart because some family members cannot gain citizenship.

I play a pretty uncommon sport called squash.

 

Jun Takeda, High School Campaigns Intern:

How would you describe yourself in three adjectives?

Friendly, laid-back and active.

What cause are you most passionate about? Why?

Thumb Wars, which deals with texting and driving. I know most of my friends have used their cell phones while driving at some point and so I believe that all teens need to be made aware of the life-threatening dangers of texting and driving. 

What is one fun fact about you?

I have attended 9 different schools throughout my life so far. And I'm only 18.

 

Jenny Wang, High School Office Management Intern:

How would you describe yourself in three adjectives?

Introverted, curious and laid-back.

What cause are you most passionate about? Why

I am most passionate about animal abuse and mental health awareness, because many people aren't educated enough on how to care for animals and how to react to a close friend with a mental illness.

What is one fun fact about you?

I can juggle at least one ball!
