Meet Our 2015 Summer Interns!
My name is Genesis. I am 15 years old and I went to Denver School of the Arts (DSA). I am interning with Big Hair Bigger Dreams this summer because I like what the organization stands for and feel like it is important for African American girls to have a place where they can learn and grow together.
This is my second official job. I hope to build my resume, gain experiences for my next job and gain skills from this internship. Outside of working and school I like to get an early jump start in things, such as my career in fashion design and singing. I also like to hangout with my friends and speak with my leaders at the Boys and Girls club (Vickers) as well as enjoy time alone to recoup and relax.
