Hello! I’m Amanda, the newest intern at the Paul Clarke Nonprofit Resource Center. I’ve lived in Fort Wayne for the entirety of my 23-year existence and I’ll be graduating from IPFW this May with a BA in English Communication and Women’s Studies.
Besides this lovely internship, I spend my time working at Fort Wayne Cinema Center and in the Women’s Studies office at IPFW. I’m also interning with the LGBTQ advocacy organizations Everyone Is Gay and The Parent’s Project. I’m the president of IPFW’s campus feminist organization and editor of Cat Talk–a feminist zine.
Needless to say, I like to stay busy supporting the causes that I care about.
Some of my other loves/passions include: my three cats (Bella, Couch, and Junebug), oxford commas, Harry Potter, feminism, binge watching shows on Netflix, traveling, and reading. The last book I read was Kindred by Octavia Butler and I highly recommend it (feminist science fiction for the win!).
I’m more than excited for this internship! I can’t wait to learn about all the awesome nonprofits in the area and the resources available to them.
I hope to see you around!
