Why did you pursue RFI’s Student Serviceship experience?
I truly believe in service and giving back. This internship provides that as well as the opportunity to grow as a person. I have grown up in small town Nebraska and enjoy living in rural Nebraska. I decided to pursue the RFI Serviceship, because I saw opportunity that is different than any other internship. I know what I learn during this experience will benefit me in the future.

What do you hope to learn and how do you hope to be different from this experience?
I hope to learn a multitude of different things, but I believe the best part of the experience will be the hands-on, everyday skills I am able to develop. I hope to learn how to market the best place to live, rural Nebraska, to others!

What is your favorite aspect of Nebraska?
My favorite aspect of Nebraska is how its people are truly Nebraska nice. You can always count on people from Nebraska to be willing to help each other out with anything.
