We’re so excited to welcome Bond Bordelon, Geneva McDaniels, and Nichole Osugi. Learn more about them in their own words, below.
Bond Bordelon - Program Intern
Hi everyone! My name is Bond Bordelon and I am the new Program Intern for the Fall! I am a recent graduate from The George Washington University and hope to go to nursing school in the near future! I’m originally from New Orleans and love living in DC, but definitely miss the food back home. I have a deep passion for healthcare and the holistic betterment of children’s lives, so I am extremely excited to work with an organization like Generation Hope! Just from being at Generation Hope a short time already, I can see how wonderful and instrumental this organization is. I’m thankful I get the opportunity to work with such an inspiring, kind group of people, and I can’t wait for the rest of the Fall!
Geneva McDaniels - Mental Health Intern
Hello everyone! My name is Geneva McDaniels, and I am delighted to be a Mental Health Intern with Generation Hope this fall. I’m a native Washingtonian and love my city! I am a student at Trinity Washington University completing my senior year in Health Services Administration. I aspire to become a labor and delivery nurse. My work experience is in maternal and infant health, as a Lactation Coach and family support worker. I’m passionate about maternal, infant and child health. I look forward to creating my very own birthing center in the future, with supportive services to provide families with better outcomes. Addressing social injustices and ensuring our scholars are fully supported here at Generation Hope is truly where the process begins and I’m thankful for the opportunity.
Nichole Osugi - Volunteer & Outreach Intern
Hi everyone! My name is Nichole Osugi and I am very excited to work at Generation Hope this fall as the Volunteer and Outreach intern. I graduated last year from Loyola Marymount University in Los Angeles, California with a degree in Health and Human Sciences. Currently, I am pursuing my Master of Public Health at The George Washington University and will be graduating next May. I recently interned at FRESHFARM FoodPrints, where I taught elementary-school students about healthy eating and environmental sustainability. At FRESHFARM FoodPrints, I worked with both parents and their children, and I really got to understand the important work that nonprofits do to promote social justice and overall well-being for both individuals and their community. Now, I am extremely grateful for this opportunity to be at Generation Hope and am excited to learn more about the nonprofit world, especially as I continue my journey in the public health sector. In my free time, you can find me exploring all that DC has to offer, as well as spending time with my family, friends, and of course, my two dogs!
