Who are you (where you’re from, how long you’ve been in Atlanta, hobbies and interests, etc.)?
I’m originally from Gainesville, GA, but moved here a little over a year ago after finishing school out of state—I went to Rhode Island School of Design my freshman year and then transferred to Colorado College where I created my own major in Environmental Philosophy and Practice. As you might guess from that, I like arts and crafts and playing outside.
What’s your experience with Rainbros?
I got involved with Rainbros a few months after I moved here. I was initially set up with a coach to help me get the lay of the land and have since worked with other coaches, gone on a number of Walk n Talks, and participated in many of the other events.
What kind of work are you looking for and why?
I’ve been doing work in outreach and marketing for the past year or so and want to do more with metrics and testing than I’ve been able to. I’ve looked at jobs doing marketing, GIS, UX/UI design, software engineering, and internships with intellectual property law groups. I’m really wanting to find a way to get my foot in the door and dig into something in the maths and sciences since that's what I enjoyed most in school.
What’s something you’re reading or learning right now that excites you?
I just started a part-time job as a tutor for the SAT, ACT, and class subjects and am really looking forward to brushing up on some of that material and working with and encouraging students. I’m also really glad that it’s flexible enough where I can easily take on a full-time job and continue tutoring or take a break and return to it!
