My name is Vlad Elizarov and over the last 4 months I had the opportunity to intern at Alexander’s Hope. Working at AH was a great experience because I was able to take control of my projects and make a direct impact with the growth of AH while being a part of something bigger than myself.
I learned a lot about organ donation, and heart health, and all together about the work AH does for the community. Throughout my time I got to hear a lot of amazing stories of how people overcame various hardships; and that is just one of the many things someone may experience when working with AH.
Beginning my internship I was just a general marketing intern writing up posts for the organizations website and social media pages, but I knew I could do more and make a bigger impact. I was then given the opportunity to head AH’s Instagram page where I was able to further increase engagement while bringing in many testimonials and donations alongside it.
Overall the internship was a great experience and I learned many transferable skills that helped me develop my professional career. Alexander’s Hope provided me with a lot of opportunities to make an impact and I am glad I utilized all the resources that I could. I am happy that I took the opportunity to grow with AH and I’m proud of the work I did.
