Megan Karcher, University of Massachusetts Amherst Undergraduate
empowerHER welcomed junior economics major Megan Karcher as a digital marketing intern during her winter break. “I grew up in Scituate, MA, and I got involved with empowerHER because as someone who lost their father at a young age, I know how important it is for young people to have others to look up to. I think the idea of empowerHER is inspiring and I am so glad to be a part of it.”
Rachael Villiers, a Psychology graduate from England taking a year out from studying to gain some volunteer and work experience before continuing to Clinical Psychology or venturing to Medicine. Rachael shared "Fortunately, I have close family living in Scituate and was privileged to be offered an internship at empowerHER. I am grateful to have been given the opportunity to be involved in all the hard work put in behind the scenes to make a difference to so many young girls lives, and I can truly say the experience has inspired me. I hope to return to support empowerHER and live in the USA in the near future!"
Samantha Murphy, Boston College Undergraduate
empowerHER welcomed sophmore Samantha Murphy as a programs intern during her winter break. "I grew up in Scituate, MA and want to be involved with empowerHER because it is making such a difference in our community and beyond. I went to an all-girls high school and through my experiences with my peers, I learned first hand how important it is to empower and support other women in their journeys. In my free time, I like to run, cook, and spend time with my friends and family."
Amelie Lyons, an English and Women & Gender Studies major, served as our Mentor Outreach Coordinator internship and helped to expand our reach like never before. Amelie was born and raised in New York City, which she loves, except for when the subways are being rerouted. She fostered her love of working with non-profits that empower girls over the summer while interning at Girls Write Now and thankfully shared her experience in youth mentorship with empowerHER.
Katie Lindahl, a Sociology and Women’s and Gender Studies major, served as our Mentor Program Coordinator and grew our activities and one-on-one mentor program with great enthusiasm. Katie has a passion for combating gender violence and empowering women and previously interned with a number of non-profit organizations in Washington, DC in the areas of fundraising and event-planning. She was involved in mentorship and leadership programs at BC, most notably the Emerging Leader Program for freshmen students.
