My name is Elizabeth Brustman, and I am from Wilmington, Delaware. I am currently a senior at DePauw University, working towards my bachelor’s degree in English literature.
Over the last three years, I have been a volunteer for the Indiana Women’s Prison, where I tutored women in English reading and writing to help them attain their GED’s. I have also provided after school homework help for students in middle and elementary school. Additionally, I have previous marketing experience with the Greencastle Community School Corporation.
I have always been passionate about combining my love for writing to my volunteer work as a way of giving back to others. Interning with the National Foundation for Cancer Research seemed like the perfect opportunity to accomplish just that, and I am excited to see the skills I will learn from this Communications and Digital Marketing Internship.
My name is Grace Tiedge and I am from Oakton, Virginia. I am a rising junior at Elon University as a double major in strategic communications and media analytics, with a minor in Spanish. At Elon I am on the executive board for Elonthon, a dance marathon to help benefit Duke Children’s Hospital. Last year, this yearlong fundraiser raised over $300,000. Additionally, I volunteer at the Boys and Girls Club and am a member of Alpha Chi Omega.
I am passionate about non-profit work and am excited to intern with the National Foundation for Cancer Research to combine the skills I’ve learned in the classroom and in my student involvement with my interests. I am eager to work with such an incredible team to help make this year’s Play4TheCure events successful and help make a difference in the cancer community.
