NLIHC is pleased to welcome four new interns who will be working with us during the fall semester.
Sonya Acosta will serve as NLIHC’s policy intern for the fall and spring. Sonya is currently completing a M.S. in public policy and management from Carnegie Mellon’s Heinz College. After earning her B.A. in history and international studies from the University of New Mexico, she moved to Chicago to serve with AmeriCorps. She has worked with fair housing and mobility counseling organizations and is excited to continue learning about housing policy and building equitable communities at NLIHC and beyond.
Isaiah Fleming-Klink joins NLIHC as our new field intern. He is a junior in the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University majoring in culture and politics with a concentration in comparative urban public policy. While at Georgetown, Isaiah has pursued questions around housing and criminal justice policy and their intersections, especially in his work with the Prisons and Justice Initiative. During his time with NLIHC, Isaiah hopes to continue to learn about the practical effects of housing policy and political processes on tenants and their daily lives.
Lindsey Kim is NLIHC’s new communications and graphic design intern. Lindsey is working towards her bachelor of fine arts with a concentration in graphic design at the Maryland Institute College of Art. She incorporates styles from fine arts with visual elements of design to enhance her communications. She strives to create designs and graphics that enhance understanding and enjoyment of written text. She is eager to apply her knowledge and experience in graphic arts design to advance the cause of affordable housing for the lowest income households at NLIHC.
Join us in welcoming Sonya, Isaiah, and Lindsey to the NLIHC team!
