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.
