My name is Natalie Arthur and I am so excited to join Generation Hope for the Spring 2018 semester as the Program Intern! I was born and raised in a suburb of Los Angeles called the San Fernando Valley where I have lived my whole life. I studied at Los Angeles Pierce College before transferring to California State University Northridge where I am currently a junior majoring in Child and Adolescent Development. After graduation I plan on getting my teaching credential in elementary education. Some of my hobbies include going to the movies, playing Settlers of Catan, traveling and spending time with my family and friends. I wanted to intern at Generation Hope because I thought it would be an amazing opportunity to give back to the community as well as give me experience working with families and children.
