Community Builder
For my writing internship, I spent my time as a Community Builder at Mobilize Art. I collaborated directly with the founder, Zubin Mehta, along with other members of the team. I assisted with writing the literature for the company and any material that could better communicate the beliefs of Mobilize Art to the greater art community.

Being a Community Builder involved using strong writing and communication skills, an enhanced sense of time management, the resourcefulness to seek out answers, and the capability to build healthy relationships.

Graduate Instructor
I was the graduate instructor for four summer seminars of The Great Poster Tradition. Each seminar lasted a week long, Monday through Friday, for two and a half hours, concluding with a show at the end of the week. Each student contributed one piece from the class.

As a graduate instructor, I demonstrated the ability to pass my skills on to others, while coming up with creative lessons and adapting them for individual students when needed.
