Becky’s Fund Welcomes Erzsebet

Erzsebet Helmeczy

Program and Communications Intern, 2017

Hi! My name is Erzsebet Helmeczy and I’m a new intern for Becky’s Fund. I’m originally from Ithaca NY, but I’m currently a student at American University here in D.C. I’m majoring in International Studies with thematic areas in Identity, Race, Gender, Culture and Justice, Ethics, and Human Rights. I’m also a radio show D.J and a barista! I’m looking forward to working with Becky’s Fund this summer 2017 as a Program and Communications Intern to help develop and present the Men of Code initiative.

Last summer I interned for the Advocacy Center of Tompkins County, a sexual assault and domestic violence prevention agency. The knowledge I gained from this internship inspired me to continue working on issues of SA/DV, so I conducted research which focused on the engagement tactics of sexual assault prevention programs curated for college-aged men. I’m very pleased for the opportunity to continue learning about education development, community outreach, and intimate partner violence prevention through my work with Becky’s Fund!

Becky’s Fund Welcomes Becca

Hi there! My name is Becca Fritz, and I’m a rising college senior at the University of Notre Dame in South Bend, IN. I am pursuing a double major in Gender Studies and Neuroscience, and I’m originally from Columbia, MD. I am excited to intern with Becky’s Fund this summer!

My college education is centered around my passion for mental health issues, specifically as they relate to people marginalized by the categories of gender and race. I came to Becky’s Fund because domestic violence is an issue often organized by gender and race, with serious implications for the mental health and wellness of survivors. I was drawn to the mission of Becky’s Fund and its commitment to combating intimate partner violence at its roots through open and honest discussions about gender and relationships, and I am honored to be able to work alongside the inspiring and dedicated staff at Becky’s Fund.

I am looking forward to spending the summer with Becky’s Fund and gaining experience in the non-profit sector, especially with an organization that tackles such an important issue. After graduation, I hope to explore job opportunities similar to my work with Becky’s Fund, and I am currently considering graduate programs in clinical psychology.
