Over this January externship at New City Arts Initiative in Charlottesville, Virginia, I had the opportunity to learn more about how a non-profit arts organization is run. New City Arts Initiative is an amazing organization that links together art and community in ways I did not know possible. My name is Victoria Armstrong and I'm a UVA Career IDEAs Extern.
Though the duration of my externship was only three days, I learned a lot, not only about the roles of admissions team, but also about all that GWSPH has to offer students seeking a graduate degree in one of the 30+ programs offered. After obtaining unique insight into a school of public health, I am now more confident in my pursuit of a Masters in Public Health and a future career in the field.
