My social media management internship at Coal Creative is what made me want to work in NEPA. Coal has an extremely welcoming culture and an exceptionally talented team. They all did such a great job of giving me experience and guidance in a challenging, yet fun environment. Getting to see all the organizations and collaborators that Coal works with always made me excited to go to my internship, and at the end of the semester, I left Coal feeling prepared and ready to take on the world and make a positive impact in my community.Shanie Mohamed, 2019 Coal Creative Intern
