Greetings,

I am a rising Sophomore at Morehouse College (MC) with an undecided major.  Originally I intended to study Computer Science (CS); but luckily I was able to figure out soon enough, after the countless hours of coding, that CS was not the career path I envisioned for myself. I finished my second semester with a 3.0+ GPA. I now plan to continue this positive track into my further years at MC.

Thanks to the MKE Fellows Program I was able to attain an internship the summer of 2016. The stress of interning was weighing upon me as I did not want my summer to go to waste and not have any beneficial actions to expand upon my skill-set and network over the summer. Luckily I was able to land a Resource Development Internship with United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha County (UW). Here I was able to learn so much about how non-profit organizations work and their importance to the community. My role as an intern at UW consisted of transcribing documents/interviews, maintaining a database, supporting donor stewardship, researching donor stewardship, setting up for events, attending site visits (which were my favorite), and helping as needed. I am truly thankful to the MKE Fellows Program and UW for hosting me this summer and giving me this opportunity that so few are able to acquire.

 

Genuinely,

Christian J. Wilson
