Meet Cultures of Dignity’s Newest Intern!
Cultures of Dignity: Tell us a little about yourself!
Keila: Hello! My name is Keila and I was born and raised in Boulder, CO. Currently, I am attending Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo, CA where I am focusing on business and design. I am passionate about building relationships, constantly learning, and good food (especially tacos).
Cultures of Dignity: Why are you working with Cultures of Dignity this summer?
Keila: About five years ago, I met Rosalind and Charlie in a focus group for Queen Bees and Wannabes. Throughout the following years, their work continued to resonate with me. In January, I reached out to them and am now super excited to be a part of the team!
Cultures of Dignity: If you could have any superpower what would it be?
Keila: I would choose the superpower of teleportation. It would be so much more time efficient and it would be better for the environment! And I could avoid traffic on Broadway during rush hour.
Cultures of Dignity: What projects will you be working on with CoD?
Keila: I will be primarily working on marketing, branding, and graphics for CoD. I will also assist in administrative business aspects (analytics, etc.)
Cultures of Dignity: What is an issue you see in schools you want to fix?
Keila: I am concerned with the way students are taught to view failures as defeat. Instead, I think failures should be embraced as an important, humbling learning experience. Promoting this growth mindset empowers students to persevere and overcome challenges.
