Hello RAWK folks!
We would like to introduce you to our new Executive Assistant Interns for the summer:
Karina Pantoja is from the small town of Paw Paw, MI and has just finished her second year of school at Kalamazoo College. She is pursuing an English major with an emphasis in Creative Writing as well as a concentration in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies. At K College she has served as the Assistant Editor of the school’s literary magazine The Cauldron along with being one of the Co-Directors of the Kalamazoo Poetry Collective and a Co-Leader of the mind-body-wellness group called K Team. Karina is thrilled to be a part of RAWK and to make connections with the youth in Kalamazoo county as they discover and enhance their skills in reading and writing. She believes that both reading and writing can serve as avenues for social change and relationship building with others and the self. Karina is looking forward to spending her summer at RAWK and exchanging music suggestions and puns with anyone willing.
Next up is Carolyn C Coulter, who can’t wait to get started at RAWK! She is from the Westside of Chicago, IL and came to Kalamazoo to study at Kalamazoo College in 2016. At Kalamazoo College she is Majoring in English with a concentration in Journalism. She also plans to minor in Theatre Arts because she loves the behind scenes of producing a play. In her free time she loves to watch Netflix and listen to R&B music. When reading, she tends to read anything that informs her about a topic in history in a engaging way because she soooo, doesn’t like history books. She can’t wait to learn more about the Kalamazoo community and grow with you guys!
We're in for a wild summer so it's the perfect timing for their arrival. Stop in and say hi!
