We're proud to announce the Secular Student Alliance's Summer Interns for 2013! They are:
Tori Rehr - Resource Development
Tori is a junior majoring in in Psychology and minoring in Spanish and Gender Studies at Juniata College. She studied in Quito, Ecuador during the 2012-13 academic year, where she interned at Timmy Global Health and worked as a translator during medical brigades. She previously worked as research assistant to the Psychology Department at Juniata, investigating cognitive effects of language learning and the political implications of multiculturiasm.
Tori began to develop her interest in secular issues during high school. She worked in resource development at the Juniata College Office of Student Activities, and is excited to apply this knowledge to secular advocacy. Tori is also active in the interfaith movement and looks forward to working at the Secular Student Alliance this summer!
Kate Donovan - Communications
Kate is a rising senior at Northwestern double majoring in psychological services and psychology. At some point she'd like to make people sit on couches and tell her about their feelings, but right now she writes in different places around the internet. Kate was raised believing alternative medicine worked, and now spends her time making skeptical faces at it. She is the outgoing president of Northwestern's SSA, served as Foundation Beyond Belief's Communications and Marketing intern, and is on the Secular Woman speakers bureau.
Liz Dudek - Graphic Design
Liz Dudek grew up as a devout Christian around the area of Dallas, TX. It wasn't until she found the Secular Students at Collin College that she felt comfortable exploring her doubts and skepticism, and eventually she came out as an atheist in early 2011. Since then, she has been the webmaster and Public Relations Coordinator for SSCC, and the Publicity Director for the 2013 North Texas Secular Convention. Now that she has her Associate of Science, she plans to attend the University of North Texas and major in either Public Relations or International Relations and she is currently working on a certificate in Graphic Design. Her goal is to work for a nonprofit organization in the future.
