This summer, we welcomed three interns to tackle special projects at Ulman.
Get to know them a little & what they’ve learned from their internship experience so far!
Janet Hong – Communications Intern
Where are you from? New Jersey.
What school do you go to and what are you studying? Johns Hopkins University. I’m majoring in International Studies and English.
What is your role at Ulman? I’m the Communications and Development Intern this summer, working on a variety of projects including email appeals and the newsletter.
What have you learned during your time at Ulman? I’ve learned how to be more human, which is one of the four Ulman values. The staff and those who are connected with Ulman truly care about what they do and their work makes an impact in the community. Everyone is genuine, supportive, and committed to the foundation’s mission, which is reflected in the positive and motivated work culture. It is inspiring to be surrounded by such wonderful people every day and be a part of this incredible mission that touches so many lives.
Fun fact. I volunteer tutor third graders through Tutorial Project at JHU!
Cole Ensminger – Fundraising Intern
Where are you from?Hershey, PA.
What school do you go to and what are you studying?Penn State University and I’m a Journalism major.
What is your role at Ulman? I’m the Fundraising intern, so I’m focusing on social fundraising through Events and Support Through Sport.
What have you learned at Ulman? The staff, volunteers and friends of Ulman have showed me the power of people. Every event I attend or day I work, the people I am surrounded by are excited to be making a difference in the lives of the young adults impacted by cancer. The personal connections that they make and their contagious attitude to seize every day fosters a community of support where everyone feels connected to the mission and to each other. I have learned that genuinely caring about people inspires them to genuinely care about others.
Fun fact.Throughout my involvement in Penn State’s THON, I have raised over $7,500 benefiting families impacted by childhood cancer.
Audrey Holzrichter – Events Intern
Where are you from?Crofton, MD.
What school do you go to and what are you studying? University of Maryland, College Park. I’m majoring in Government and Politics with a French minor.
What is your role at Ulman? I’m the Events & Marketing intern, mainly helping with the Everyday Hero component of Fight Night.
What have you learned at Ulman?At Ulman, I have learned about the planning, budgeting, and management of the different events involving the foundation, with a special focus on the brand new Everyday Heroes element of Fight Night. I’ve also gotten to learn about the many other working parts that make up Ulman, such as Patient Navigation and Support Through Sport, and how they contribute to the overall success of the foundation.
Fun fact.I can wiggle my ears and have a hyper-extended shoulder!
We’re incredibly grateful for Janet, Cole, & Audrey spending their summers with us (and taking fun photos).
