I currently have two internships that are both remote because of my impending move to Santa Cruz. One of them is an unpaid internship at Solar Cookers International that I received largely due to being the president of ARC's Model United Nations Club. I help write international policy, oral statements, input sensitive paperwork, and create marketing strategies for Solar Cookers International. The most important part of my success in ARC were the clubs. In the last two years at ARC I had the privilege of becoming a cabinet member of Model United Nations and then the president for my last year. ARC prepared me for my future by teaching me to persevere.
