Summer is one of our favorite times of year at BFR, because it’s full of new energy. That’s because we always have several interns helping out around the office. It’s always great to have new perspectives and ideas. This year, we have five lovely ladies helping out ranging from high school seniors to college seniors. We are super excited to have them on board with us, and we wanted to give you a chance to meet them since they’ll be in and out of The Rev all summer. Read a little bit about each one below:
Annalise – Just graduated from Cabot High School and headed to Vanderbilt University in the Fall. Plans on studying Human and Organizational Development, which she hopes will prepare her for a career in which she can better the world. #FutureWorldChanger She loves school, but says that doesn’t count as an extracurricular or hobby 😉 She loves to play the piano in her free time. She has served on a mission trip in Guatemala, and hopes to join BFR on a trip to Africa in the future! This is her second summer interning at BFR, and she says she is “grateful for the opportunities and the experience” that she has gained so far! She knows she will continue to grow and learn.
