My name is Chloe Barnard. My hometown is in Asheville, North Carolina. I am excited to explore Washington D.C this semester. I will be joining the Generation Hope team as the Spring Intern. I am a student at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill majoring in Public Policy. I am currently enrolled in the Honors Public Policy Program in Washington D.C.
I looked predominantly for education related internships in my initial search. I felt the most excited about Generation Hope after my interviews. I liked that this organization has a very specific goal for its outcome. Many organizations provide emotional or financial support for teen parents, which is extremely important. However, I like that Generation Hope provides both the emotional and financial support, with a specific outcome of college attainment. Further, I look forward to learning about the inner workings of a non-profit organization.
Fun facts: I lived in Taipei, Taiwan for the first six years of my life. I go every other year to visit my mom’s side of the family and to practice my Mandarin Chinese. In addition, I went to Shanghai, China for my spring semester in 2016. If you have any questions about Chinese or Taiwanese culture, or Mandarin Chinese feel free to talk to me! I look forward to meeting everyone in the Generation Hope Family!
