Another Intern Joins the Team!

Today we at the Humanitarian Service Project had the pleasure of welcoming another of our summer interns, Samantha Isdale, our new public relations intern. Samantha is majoring in public relations at Illinois State University, and comes to us with a strong enthusiasm to learn and serve. Samantha says that she applied for the internship because when she learned about HSP’s various projects serving needy senior citizens and children in the community, she wanted to be involved. Samantha is very excited to be here, and to be gaining experience in both public relations and the non-profit world. Likewise, we are very excited to have her with us.

Samantha says the decision to come to work for HSP as an intern was a “no-brainer” because service has already been such an important part of her life. Most recently, she spent her spring break on a trip serving the homeless in Washington D.C. She says her mother has been a big influence in her life, stressing the importance of helping the needy in her from a young age. Outside of service and school, Samantha’s major passion is volleyball. She played volleyball throughout high school and her freshman year of college, and she continues to play through intramurals. She’s sure to fit right in with Brian and Eric, who we introduced in our blog on Tuesday, who both are quite the sports fans themselves. We are very happy to have Samantha with us, and want to welcome her to HSP.
