WOW Intern Spotlight
"This summer I will be interning at National Consumers League, a non-profit group that advocates for the rights of workers and consumers. They promote social and economic justice in the U.S. and abroad by tackling a range of issues, from food safety to child labor. I am looking forward to working on their campaigns that fight for paid sick days and minimum wage and educate Americans to protect them from fraud. As a Health: Science, Society and Policy major, I am interested in their healthy food initiatives and their work to raise patient awareness about medication adherence. I am incredibly excited to join the NCL team and to be a part of the WOW Fellowship this summer. This unique opportunity will bridge my academic pursuits with my passion for pursuing social justice and teach me about working in a small and inspiring professional environment. "
