Hello Mr. Goodnight - I am very interested in interning in your International department. I am a junior at Cary Academy and will hopefully be attending Georgetown University in 2018 (majoring in International Affairs). The last 2 weeks of May we are asked to participate in an internship program and I am really hoping to intern at SAS. My passion is government/international business affairs. I have been Vice President of my class 2 years in high school, I serve on Student Government, member of Key club and Model United Nations, French club, S.A.D.D, and volunteer at an ESL school. Last year I, along with a friend Riya Thomas, started a non-profit called Steps for Freedom. This organization was created so that we could travel to Nepal and assist a local agency combat sex trafficking of young children. We started our venture after reading about an amazing woman named Anuradha Koirala (CNN woman of the year 2010). Anuradha Koirala is a 65-year-old Nepalese woman who has saved over 50,000 lives from human trafficking. Koirala is the founder of Maiti Nepal. Maiti Nepal works to identify, rescue, and rehabilitate Nepalese women, girls boys after they have been trafficked and forced into prostitution. We went to Nepal after raising money and collecting donations and met with Anuradha Koirala and her staff. Additionally, we volunteered at a home for abandoned children in Godamchaur. As you can see I want to be involved with policy making and affect positive change for people - both locally and internationally. The dates of our “Discovery Term” is May 30 - June 8 (however I would enjoy working longer). I would appreciate any day/time to intern at your company. Thank you and I really look forward to hearing from you.
