Our new intern will help the leadership team with event planning and training coordination, database management, and as a brand ambassador of the FCN to her university.
As part of her practicum course, Angelica will be writing an academic paper on her experience, documenting the best practices of government communications and education. For the FCN, she will be a contributing blogger, tweeter, and event host.
