Student Internship Testimonial – Anisa Williams

During Spring Semester 2023, WIF – Wells International Foundation, welcomed Anisa Williams onto the team as an intern. Anisa is BFA Fashion Design, 2025.

During her time at WIF, Anisa curated content for their African Diaspora Cultural Impact in Paris Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter platforms to continue their outreach to teens in North America with the intent to inspire them to consider studying abroad.

She also tracked the expansion of their network through graphic analysis of the demographics of those who follow and engage with WIF on these channels.

Here’s what Anisa had to say about her internship experience, which ended in May 2023:

In my Spring semester, I had the opportunity and pleasure to volunteer at the Wells International Foundation as a PR and social media intern. There I learned the inner workings of how a business/organization reaches out to worldwide crowds with a target demographic.

As a fashion designer, learning how to market a product, your work, or even yourself as a brand is a very valuable skill that this internship helped me grow. Despite the program being independent online, I met Dr. Wells several times and was able to network with like-minded creatives and be introduced to places, exhibitions, small businesses and parts of Paris that I never would have learnt about on my own.

I think for others interested in nonprofit work, this internship is a great opportunity to grow on an independent level, as this job is really about self-initiative.  But it was also a mentorship program for me that I really appreciated as well.

I have lots of admiration for the WIF team, and I thank you, Monique, for allowing me to help, even if just a little, contribute to such an important cause.
