Alhambra U.S. Chamber

Summer 2019

Position: Student Intern
Student: IRG Sophomore

As an intern for the Alhambra U.S. Chamber I am exposed to many tasks including, research, contacting foreign agents, and aiding the Hoft Institute (a partner of the Alhambra US Chamber). The environment can seem a little disorganized and even chaotic at first, especially if you have no prior experience. Nonetheless, Anjum (the Chambers co - founder) has a plan, trust her and you will see as everything comes together.

Some of the tasks include researching individuals, organizations, and conferences. Other days however, we are given a project such as contacting different universities to form partnerships, or contact Harvard professors to provide classes to foreign students. The Alhambra US Chamber is constantly conducting projects that provide education with international education, learning about these organizations and knowing that you are making a difference is a great feeling. If not conducting research, or working on a project, the intern will be working with Anjum in any miscellaneous tasks she might need to be completed. This can include anything from organizing her flights to ordering books to the Hoft Institute. If there's nothing specific to be done with the Alhambra US Chamber then one can always help Blair out, the Vice President of the Hoft Institute. The help can include anything from organizing a fundraiser to translating documents. Lastly, if one simply needs a breather one could always play ping pong with some of the ESL students of the Hoft Institute. Getting to know them, their stories, and goals is one of the best parts of working with this organization.
