Some words from Brother Elisabeth Beall (right)
I spent the past four months interning for Kiva, an international nonprofit that aims to connect people through lending to alleviate poverty and expand economic opportunity. It is the world's first and largest crowdfunding platform for social good.
Some words from Brother Drew Bottimore
I've been fortunate enough to have had a number of internships over the past few years. They have all been rewarding in different ways, but the job I had this past summer was especially enjoyable and helpful in terms of career development and direction.
I interned for the international arm of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, primarily helping with the establishment of two country-specific initiatives, geared towards increasing market access and investment for American companies and their subsidiaries operating in Eastern Europe. I not only had the privilege of building relationships with incredible people, but this experience also solidified my interest in going into the international affairs and global strategy side of business.
I very rarely find people as big-picture-minded and career development-oriented as my brothers in AKPsi, especially in college. Mark Twain once said, "The secret to getting ahead is getting started." By surrounding myself with people like my brothers, I have been both inspired and enabled to "get started."
