Hello! On this weblog, you’ll be listening to much more from me, Linnea Teske. I’m a freshman learning political science, and I simply joined the Wisconsin Microfinance group as the brand new Media Intern! I really feel so fortunate to have the ability to work for such a beautiful group, and in help of such a tremendous trigger. I’ve been keen about making a distinction since I used to be in highschool; my dream job has at all times been to make an affect on some a part of the world – and on this place, it’s clear how I’m doing that. At Wisconsin Microfinance, which paves the highway to enterprise success for underprivileged girls in deprived communities, I’ve the prospect to be part of one thing larger than myself. And I’m so excited for it!
Indisputably, my new place at Wisconsin Microfinance is totally different from some other job I’ve had. In my hometown of Campbellsport, WI, the place the cows nearly outnumber the individuals, I labored as a barista in a neighborhood espresso store. Now, going to school within the state’s capital and having a job that’s primarily on my pc, it looks as if each facet of my life has modified. And now I get to assist girls (and males) change their very own lives in much more dramatic methods than mine has. My enthusiasm for the job goes even past the superb trigger that this group stands for; I completely love to put in writing, and this place permits me to put in writing almost daily in regards to the distinction that Wisconsin Microfinance is making throughout the globe.
In my first semester at UW Madison, I took a number of lessons which have re-shaped my views on worldwide poverty and humanitarian assist. My favourite class was a race-based sociology course, which taught me extra in regards to the poverty cycle, and in regards to the tough third-world situations that individuals are residing in everywhere in the globe. Not solely did the category make me really feel infinitely extra lucky for the issues I’ve, but it surely additionally made me need to make a distinction firsthand. And after studying extra in regards to the Wisconsin Microfinance mission and the superb individuals who work right here, I really feel like I’m lastly doing that.
Outdoors of labor, I like to color and draw. In case you noticed me in particular person, I’d in all probability be sketching or writing away on my laptop computer. I’m tremendous keen about issues like music, artwork, films, and social justice points. Please, be at liberty to achieve out to me at [email protected] in case you have any questions on me or the group. I’m already scheduling time to speak with a neighborhood Madison highschool Microfinance Membership, and I’d like to schedule time with some other faculty or group group to share my pleasure! I’d love to listen to from you!
