    Miami, Florida (Hybrid)

    Spring 2023

  • Project Destined is a commercial real estate program that helps talented and diverse students from across the globe unlock career opportunities through training, mentoring, and unparalleled networking opportunities.


    I was selected as one of the scholars to participate in the Spring 2023 internship hosted at the University of Miami. This internship was a Project Destined collaboration between Breakthrough Miami and Tricap Development that provided 15 Miami-based high school students the opportunity for a college-level education in all aspects of commercial real estate - property development, valuation, financing, and deal pitching.


    Project Destined empowered me to become skilled, resourced, and networked in positive, socially-minded, community-based real estate development by helping me build an ownership mindset through learning the inner workings of the real estate industry.


    The weekly training sessions covered property valuation, market analysis and research, and sales pitches. Our sessions also featured guest speakers including Project Destined co-founder, Cedric Bobo and other industry experts as well as field trips to various types of real estate properties.

    Overtown Youth Center

    Miami, Florida (Virtual)

    Summer and Fall 2022

  • The Overtown Youth Center (OYC) is a youth development program that provides comprehensive services to at-risk youth – between kindergarten to 25-year-olds – and their families, all of whom live in some of the most underserved neighborhoods in South Florida.


    OYC serves as a critical community hub that elevates the aspirational goals of its residents by fostering hope, promoting lifelong learning, guiding youth development, and strengthening family wellness.


    During my Summer and Fall 2022 internship terms with OYC, I served as the Environmental Advocacy Program Coordinator. I was charged with creating a social media civic engagement learning module that taught best practices for building advocacy and awareness about pressing community environmental issues to over 160 high school students.


    Using my skills as a content producer, my passion for environmental sustainability and my relationship as a Miami Waterkeeper (MWK) Junior Ambassador program member, I developed and taught a curriculum that utilized MWK’s “No Fertilizer Summer” social media campaign as the focus for a social media civic engagement project for the students.


    I was responsible for providing comprehensive, multicomponent instruction to the students, which included:

    • Information on how to identify and frame the objectives for an awareness/advocacy social media campaign.
    • Explanation of the various forms of creative elements that can be incorporated into social media posts.
    • Instruction on how best to work together in a team dynamic when developing social media posts.


    The project culminated with the students applying the lessons taught - while working either independently or in small teams - in creating social media posts that successfully engaged with the target audience, effectively built awareness and advocated support for MWK’s “No Fertilizer Summer” campaign.
