Becky’s Fund Welcomes New Intern Caroline LadzinskiSeptember 5, 2012
My name is Caroline Ladzinski and I am the new intern at Becky’s Fund.
I am a Maryland native. However, currently, I am embracing the Washingtonian
life style as a sophomore at American University. As a student of American University’s
School of Public Affairs (SPA) and Department of Women, Gender and Sexuality Studies, my studies are focused specifically on women concentrated public policy. More specifically, I am pursuing an interdisciplinary major in Communications, Legal Studies, Economics, and
Government (C.L.E.G) along with a minor in Women’s Studies.
Alongside my normal course work, I spend most of my time having an active role,
as the current fundraising chair and member of the School of Public Affairs Leadership
program. It is a four-year program that culminates into a Certificate in Advance Leadership Studies. There are many facets to the program, including a classroom portion. However, in my opinion, the greatest aspect is the social Here is a selection of people having Neptune in horoscope for libra (around 4000 people). action opportunity. As a sophomore, the program challenges each member to create, plan and execute a social action project on an issue of his or her choice. As someone who has personal experience with dating abuse, I came to the conclusion that I wanted to focus my project on this particular issue. While having this opportunity, I found myself wanting to be part of something greater then myself that is really making a difference in ending domestic violence.
My extreme passion for this issue and my areas of academic focus are what lead
me to the Becky Lee Women”s Support Fund”s doorsteps. I am so excited they have welcomed me in. I have some fundraising, community education, and event planning experience. I am eager to learn some new skills in development and fundraising, as well as, bring in my past experiences so I can really be a useful member of the Becky’s Fund team. I am so excited to be here and cannot wait to see what the next few months have to offer.
