Intern Testimony: Samantha

Meeting with the team before I began volunteering remotely was really great. I was able to get to know the staff a little bit more and also ask questions I had about what I needed to do. I felt welcomed from the beginning at All Girls Allowed and the information I received beforehand really helped me to understand my tasks and role as a member of team.

 

The work I've done with All Girls Allowed so far has matched my previous work experience exactly, while also giving me the freedom to make suggestions and stay up to date on the latest social networking strategies and changes.

Samantha served as a social media campaign volunteers with All Girls Allowed.
