Meet the newest additions to the Appleseed team – our 2022 Fall Interns!
We are always excited to work with leaders in our fight for justice and opportunity for all Nebraskans. Learn more about their skills and what brings them to this work below. They’re a talented bunch!
We’re also excited to welcome back our returning interns and clerks. Read our past introductions for Shealyn, Ritsa, Meylin, Haley, and Adam on our Summer 2022 intern and clerk welcome blog!
Mia has joined the Communications team, bringing us her experience as an Advertising & Public Relations major and Political Science minor. She is currently a senior at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln and her hometown is Waverly, NE. Mia is excited to be a part of making a statewide impact in order to improve the lives of all Nebraskans. Prior to starting at Appleseed, she wrote a story for Climate Change Nebraska entitled “How Nebraska’s Climate Education Could Shape the Future”, which placed sixth in the nation at the Hearst Journalism Awards. She hopes to continue working in the nonprofit sector after graduating, focusing on local and state level change. A fun fact about Mia, she used to be a drum major in her school’s marching band!
Meyri is interning with our Health Care Access team and is a senior at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, originally from Eagan, Minnesota. She is majoring in Political Science and Journalism, along with minors in Global Studies, Human Rights & Humanitarian Affairs, and Global Leadership. Meyri is excited to be a part of directly supporting people through tangible actions and community support. She also enjoys reading, rollerblading, and trying new food. Meyri also has a cat named Charlie!
Andrea is excited to continue her community outreach work through our Collective Impact Lincoln team. She is currently a Sophomore at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, double majoring in English and Political Science. Andrea is the proud daughter of two Mexican immigrants and a proud woman, activist, and learner. Growing up in Lincoln, she was a part of the Lincoln Public School’s diversity and equity cadre, won an Inspire Award, and did a lot of volunteer and community work throughout high school. In the future, she hopes to be a criminal defense attorney, helping those who cannot afford representation and those who are innocent.
