Two Months of Growing and Learning: My Summer Internship with AAPI FORCE-EF

Our conversation taught me an important lesson: everyone — regardless of their prior political engagement — deserves a chance to learn, and everyone has the potential to become more engaged and use their voice to make an impact.

Believing in everyone’s capacity for growth and political engagement is only one of many, many lessons I learned during my internship with AAPI FORCE. Over the last few months, I’ve grown skills in outreach and one-on-one conversations, workshop development and facilitation, communications and graphic design, and even day-to-day things like taking initiative and developing work plans. I’m so thankful for how much I’ve grown this summer, but I’m even more thankful to have grown in community where I always felt supported and cared for. Special shoutouts to Lan, Jen, and Timmy for all their encouragement and Andrew for being the dopest co-intern!
