Role at Amani: I am the Marketing and Resource Development intern. I help out with our social media platforms, writing blog posts, helping in the Chattanooga Warehouse, researching ways to grow our online presence through giveaways and cross promotional opportunities with other blogs, and generally assisting wherever I am needed.
What made you want to intern with Amani? I fell in love with the products of Amani before I even heard about the mission and story of Amani ya Juu. I would see the products around town, in a friend’s kitchen, or around a stranger’s wrist and ask about it and it was Amani every time. When I finally heard the mission of peace, reconciliation and empowerment, there was no turning back. I fell in love with the organization and applied just a week later. I am so grateful for this opportunity.
Random Facts: I am a twin, Little Women is my favorite movie, and I drink coffee like it’s going out of style
