Yesenia Rodriguez, Ethnic Young Adult Intern
My name is Yesenia Rodriguez, and I was born and raised in North Philadelphia. I grew up in the church and spent most of my days after school and during the summer at St. Phillips United Methodist Church under the Eastern Pennsylvania Conference. I am a rising senior at Claremont McKenna California in sunny Southern California, majoring in International Relations with a Leadership Studies minor. I hope to enter the International Education industry, preferably with nonprofits surrounding education policies in Latin America.
Jesus Orozco, Summer Justice Intern
I am a Thousand Oaks United Methodist Church member of the California-Pacific Annual Conference. I attend Moorpark College and study Business with a minor in Psychology. My internship is focused on disability justice, and I am working with the National Disability Rights Network. My goal is to learn more about advocacy to make the world more inclusive and accessible. My faith and passion for creating a more inclusive world is a major motivator for my life and actions. I plan to bring my valuable learning to my Church community.
