Hello! My name is Kimberly Downs. I live in the Greater Boston area and have travelled to DC to spend my fall semester interning at Becky’s Fund. I am a senior at Endicott College majoring in Marketing Communications and minoring in Graphic Design. At Endicott, I am highly involved in student activities, previously serving as Chair of our Campus Activities Board and co-Founder of the NARAL Pro-Choice chapter at Endicott.
I have been passionate about women’s rights since I began college. When I hear stories of gender inequality and mistreatment around the world, I cannot help but feel my voice can change that. My motivation lies in female reproductive rights and prevention of domestic violence. Living on a college campus drove my desire to devote my work to organizations like Becky’s Fund, where I hope to make as much of a difference as possible.
I am beyond thrilled to be in DC interning at Becky’s Fund this fall. This opportunity will allow me to immerse myself in my interest while working to make changes. I am specifically excited to educate youth groups of the topic of domestic violence, as I feel this to be one of the most useful tools in making change. I am enthusiastic and eager going into this semester, and am so grateful to be here!
