Our Intern Cathy

shapeimage_1The First Person office is a small one. Vicki, Dan, Karina, Nick and Eva create the core of the First Person community. With so few of us and so much to do, we are eternally grateful for the interns and volunteers who enter the First Person orbit and make our lives easier and often more entertaining.

Last Friday was our super fab intern Cathy’s last day with First Person. Cathy came to us through an awesome “semester abroad” program at Kalamazoo College. While Philly isn’t a foreign country, it is very different from Kalamazoo, Michigan. We shared her with the Norris Square Neighborhood Project, a fantastic community center in North Philly. That’s Cathy on the left with some of the adorable kids she worked with there.

As part of her academic requirements, Cathy created a blog, documenting her work and play in the City of Brotherly Love. I only worked with Cathy briefly, so I didn’t know she was on a quest for the ultimate Philadelphia coffee shop. I also didn’t realize she was working on a Photo of the Day project. We loved Cathy’s help on our blog and with other marketing initiatives. Plus, she was just a great person to have around the office. Thanks again for all your help, Cathy!

If you are interested in joining the First Person community as an intern, contact Dan at dang@firstpersonarts.org. We are currently looking for 2010 interns to help with marketing, blogging and audio/visual work!
