Intern Spotlight: Natalie W.

1. Would you rather eat a handful of hair or lick three public telephones?

I think I’d go for the telephones, provided that I could choose the telephones which I would lick, and depending on whose hair it was I’d have to eat and whose hand the handful had to fit in.

It’d probably be easiest to just say the telephones.


2. What’s your favorite quote?

“Sooner or later, all the peoples of the world will have to discover a way to live together in peace and thereby transform this pending cosmic elegy into a creative psalm of brotherhood. If this is to be achieved, man must evolve for all human conflict a method which rejects revenge, aggression, and retaliation. The Foundation of such a method

                                                                                                        is love.”

                                                                                                      – Martin Luther King, Jr.


3. If you were stranded on an island with only one food item, what would it be?

I have gotten really, really into baked sweet potatoes lately. I’m not sure why. But for actually containing some nutritional value they are pretty delicious so I feel like they would be a decent choice.


4. What are some fun hobbies you like to do in your spare time?

I love to read, I love to write, and I also enjoy photography.


5. What is your major here at CU and why did you chose that area of focus?

I’m an International Affairs major – I’m really interested in peace building, sustainable development, and transnationalism. I love learning about experiences different than my own and am excited to see more and more people in the coming years creating positive change regardless of borders – like what we see with GlobeMed!


6. What is your position in GlobeMed?

I’ve really loved working as a staff member on the grants team this year, and I’m very excited to start as a campaign coordinator next year!


7. What makes you so passionate about GlobeMed?

GlobeMed provides an opportunity for a positive response to the frustration we sometimes we feel. Not only can we contribute to real change right now through GlobeMed, we can develop our skills at a young age so that we can continue to do so for the rest of our lives.


8. What are you most excited about for this summer’s GROW internship?

I am so excited to see the grassroots work of a developing social movement firsthand! I can’t wait to make some connections and bring them back to the chapter, and I am really excited to see myself in a new context and develop myself as an activist.


9. Tell us one secret about yourself.

I keep other peoples’ secrets better than my own. This also means that I can’t think of something that at least one person doesn’t know about me!
