    GF Showcased Work 

    As I mentioned in my last post, I’ve worked to redesign several documents (toolkits) with the new GF marketing pack and also have had to translate some documents into Spanish to market our 2014 Fellowship to Spanish-speaking candidates. I’ve attached a few snapshots of this work—you can see them below.

    Also, I help the interns in their professional development by sending out weekly updates chock full of TEDxTalks, Forbes articles, and Brookings events. Here is one of my all time favorite TEDxTalks for you to check out!

    Also this week, in honor of International Women’s Day I am participating in a company wide challenge to feed myself on only $2.50 a day. I created a fundraising page and encouraged friends and family to sponsor my challenge. In the end, I was able to raise over $200!! All of this money goes to support Grameen Foundation and in turn, empowers women to lift themselves out of poverty. Check out the links below to see a short video about our work with women and see my fundraising page. It’s an interesting challenge and I’m especially proud because I really wasn’t expecting to raise much money.

    Overcoming Phone-A-Phobia 

    Of all the responsibilities I have at my internship, talking on the phone is the one I enjoy the least. If given the choice between making a phone call or sending an e-mail, I prefer the e-mail. Writing gives me the chance to think about and articulate what I want to say. But in many situations, a phone call is faster, more efficient, and sometimes the only option for communication.

      Sarah – making those phone calls sounds very tough. I like the compromises you suggest if the business owner does not want to give you money. You are so right that doing something that benefits both your organization and the business owner is a win-win. Marie
