Get to know our Spring Interns: Meet Megan!

This spring we’re welcoming another cycle of interns from the COMM 466 class at NC State. The class is an introduction to nonprofit leadership and development, and we’re excited to share what we’ve learned in our own journeys with interns each semester!

What are some cool things about you? 

I am majoring in Communication, with a concentration in PR, because I love to make connections with others. I was originally born in Seoul, South Korea and have traveled to England, Haiti, London, Germany, and Israel! I am a Sister of Alpha Phi Gamma Sorority, Inc. and love to serve alongside my sisters.

Why is service meaningful to you?

From an early age, my parents have instilled in me that the world is not my own. I have been serving my community for several years in different ways and have seen the impact it has. Service allows us to put our selfish desires aside in order to dedicate our time to the needs of others. I have developed a strong passion for serving my community because it allows me to grow as a person, as well as connect with those around me.

What impact do you want to have? 

I want to have a lasting impact on the community in the sense that others see service and volunteering in a new light. I want them to not just see service as something they need to check off a list, but rather, I would like them to see serving the community as an opportunity to give back while growing as an individual.
