Hi, my name is Marc Charbonier and I’m super excited to be the Operations Intern this summer. I’m a rising junior at William & Mary, majoring in Sociology. I’m in love with the earth and the hearts of the people on it. My favorite things in the world are the golden hour before sunset, my friends’ couches, and laughing until I cry. At college, I’m a part of an organization dedicated to the alleviation of poverty and homelessness in Williamsburg and I’ve taken lots of courses related to social issues and community engagement. Long term, I would love to dedicate my life to the pursuit of social justice, because I see justice as love in action. I feel super lucky to be a part of the Generation Hope team because I’m continually in awe of how important and impactful its work is. Also, in joining this team, I’ve doubled the number of veggie-eating, Camino-walking, earthy crunchy people on it, as well as raised the number of guys in the office to an unprecedented high.
Sidney is currently a student at the College of William and Mary studying both Psychology and Government. She loves people and is passionate about seeing them succeed. Interning at Generation Hope has provided her the opportunity to work with people in her community and watch them grow. She especially enjoys childcare and working with the Scholars adorable children. When not working she enjoys volunteer work, rugby and hiking new places with her dog.
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.
