NLIHC welcomes Bethany Gen as the new research intern and Antoine Howell as the new graphic design/communications intern, both of whom will be working at NLIHC for the summer.
Originally from Sacramento, CA, Bethany Gen is a second-year student at Oberlin College in Ohio. She is currently pursuing a B.A. in psychology and politics with a concentration in peace and conflict studies. Bethany is a volunteer for Centro de Servicios Sociales, an organization dedicated to improving the socio-economic status of community residents. She is also an officer for Oberlin Students in Solidarity with Guatemala, a student-led organization that, through its partnership with an indigenous community, works to spread awareness of environmental and social justice issues facing indigenous Guatemalan peoples. Bethany is eager to expand her work beyond the community level and contribute to NLIHC’s mission to achieve universal access to safe and affordable housing.
Antoine Howell is a senior at James Madison University in Virginia. He is currently pursuing a B.F.A in studio arts with a minor in graphic design. He is the president and chaplain of the Beta Delta Delta chapter of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Incorporated, managing a wide range of communications and graphic design efforts for the fraternity. Antoine looks forward to gaining professional graphic design knowledge and working with NLIHC to broaden communications about affordable housing to other sectors beyond housing.
Please join us in welcoming Bethany and Antoine to the NLIHC team!
