Intern Spotlight: Lupe Anchondo

Latinitas interns are a major force in the advancement of our outreach and empowerment of young women. Everyday interns for Latinitas contribute their time and knowledge to different areas of the organization.

Literally transcending the border between classroom and career, UTEP Graphic Design sophomore Lupe Anchondo is using the skills as she learns them in class as a graphic design intern.

Previously a club leader during the spring semester, Lupe applied for a fall internship.

"[Latinitas] gives girls like me great opportunities to expand themselves in a variety of ways," Lupe said.

She has taken advantage of the opportunity and has created bilingual flyers, brochures, and other club materials for Latinitas, trying her hand at new techniques she's learning everyday in her graphics classes. Additionally, Lupe sees this as a way for her to see if graphic media really is her calling.

"I applied for this specific internship because I wanted to get the experience I need to see if this is the career I want to pursue," Lupe said.

Latinitas' interns play a unique, individual part in our success. Working towards the common goal of empowering young Latinas, our interns are committed to the organization and its members. From outreach, writing for the magazine, designing materials, editing, taking photographs, all the way to initiating PR tactics and strategies, marketing, fundraising, creating curricula, or planning special events, Latinitas interns are spreading the word and gaining experience for their own future successes.
