I really enjoyed reading the refugee interviews. It was mind-opening and perspective-broadening to do so, and I feel like I learned a lot and gained new insight into what refugees are going through.

All interns interact with content from and create products for the TSOS pillars of advocacy, education, and integration.

This creates a unique academic opportunity to be part of building a repository of refugee stories, participate in advocacy for and assist the integration of the many individuals behind the label refugee.

What interns start during their time with TSOS will become a foundation of future research and understanding of global crises and how to best prevent and aid in global refugee issues.

"I think the goal of the organization is what drove most of us to work in the program. For me what was very amazing was the authentic way we made our videos and how TSOS shared these stories. I made some incredible memories with my team. I am very proud of the way we collaborated on every project."

I really enjoyed working with my internship partner. She showed me different ways to think about processing and communicating stories.
