Social media and communications intern

May 2020 - August 2020 Tucson, AZ
“It has been truly the most eye opening experience to work with Colibri. I didn’t even know what a social media and communication internship would entail but I’ve learned so much more than just social media knowledge. Every day I learned something about the crisis on the border and about the injustices that that immigrant community is facing. Social media is an art and you learn how to move people with your creations. You get a lot of space to be creative and they provide you with all the tools. It’s not hard to be inspired when you’re with such an incredible organization.”
