What made you decide to intern with Latinitas? I was looking for an internship that would help me get a foot in the Graphic Design world. Also, I wanted an internship where I could give back.
What do you like most about Latinitas? I like that is a nonprofit organization, that helps latinas discover who they are and it better prepares them for the world after high school.
Why do you think an organization like Latinitas is important for young girls? Why would you recommend it for others? Any organization like Latinitas is important because many young girls may not have a role model to look up to, or have any idea what they plan to do after school and a origination like Latinitas helps them develop skills they can use and maybe go on to study.
What do you hope to learn or gain from an internship with Latinitas? What I hope to gain from this internship is a better understanding of Graphic Design and how better use the programs needed for Graphic design.
