Why did you pursue RFI’s Student Serviceship experience?
This internship allowed me to pursue my love of service and rural development in a way that I hope will prepare me to do the same thing with international extension someday.

What do you hope to learn and how do you hope to be different from this experience?
I want to learn how to use the resources given to me to solve a problem for other people. I want to gain better communication skills. I want to grow my network and make an impact in a community.

What is your favorite aspect of Nebraska?
My favorite aspect of Nebraska is the people. I love the way there is an unspoken notion of community and support. I love how we all support each other and can relate, on some level, to everyone here.
