For the second summer, Erik Rivas Contreras has found himself interning in quite a jungle—just not the kind you’re thinking of. Contreras is interning in a jungle of computer code at Gannett Fleming.

Samantha Carpentiere ’20, communications and marketing intern, American Foundation for Children with AIDS (AFCA)

During my internship, I created newsletter and registration email templates for all the events that the AFCA holds throughout the year. I created a promotional video for an event called #30000Miles. This internship really opened my eyes to the communications world. Going into it, I really had no clue what I wanted to do with my major; however, now I feel more confident in saying that I want to go the humanitarian, non-profit route-working with underdeveloped and underprivileged groups to leave a positive impact.

Zaida Bryant ’19, Moore Undergraduate Research Apprentice Program (MURAP), University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

I was selected to be one of 21 students across the nation to participate in the MURAP program. The 10-week program has prepared me for the graduate-level experience, and I hope to obtain a Ph.D. in either anthropology or African diaspora/African American studies. My summer research is titled ‘One Can Ever Feel [Her] Threeness: The Question of Black Authenticity for Afro-Latinas in Hip Hop Culture.' By using Afro-Latinas Amara La Negra and Cardi B, who are associated with hip-hop culture, as a case study and Twitter as a virtual ethnographic field site, I seek to understand the distinct negotiations Afro-Latinx people face surrounding their blackness in the United States. 

Bryan Colby ’20, research intern, Freshwater Research Institute, Susquehanna University

We look at streams in the area at different farms and look from a year-to-year basis to help improve it. When I started, I couldn't tell if a stream was in a good position or not. But now I can definitely tell if something doesn't have enough of a riparian zone or if it doesn't have enough trees. I think working with precision conservation is fairly important work. It's pretty cool to be the first one in there and being able to be a small part of this process of helping. I'm very interested in aquatic ecology so I think this is a step for me to take more of an interest in it, and actually do something. I would like to work on the Chesapeake Bay in the future.
