Hello! My name is Jonathan Tapan and I will be serving as Generation Hope’s Program Intern for the Spring of 2019. I am originally from sunny Burbank, California and I am currently a Psychology student at Pepperdine University. Post graduation, I hope to further my education, focusing on Childhood Development. I share similar missions and values with Generation Hope, as I aim to create positive lifestyles for children and teen parents. When I am not working or studying, I love to spend time with my nephew and niece, watching them grow in their developmental stages of life. I understand that education is very important, as children ages 0-5 are processing the world. Arriving in DC, I look forward to familiarizing the East Coast, the District, and the abundance of coffee shops in the area.
