Talk about how leadership fits into your UP education: At UP, we learn how to be leaders. For whatever our field of study we are given the tools to effectively lead others, always pushing to make things better. Through the Faith Based Leadership Initiative, I interned at Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon. I was able to experience so many aspects of the organization. I helped at all of their service sites, such a food pantry, a HIV day center and refugee services. I was also able to create a social media strategy guide for the entire organization and their ministries. Because of this program, I was able to do so much and learn so much more than just a regular intern.
