We are delighted to welcome our new cadre of spring interns to All In Energy! We continue our partnerships with the College for Social Innovation (CfSI) and with the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, with one intern from each program. We are also delighted to be launching a new partnership with Bunker Hill Community College to welcome four interns this semester through their Learn and Earn Program.
Meet our interns below!
Kirsty Kerr, Marketing Intern
Kirsty is 21 years old and a senior at Boston University’s Questrom School of Business, studying Strategy and Innovation. She studies how companies should position, develop, and embrace innovations within their company as well as how to build a sustainable, strategic model. Her passion for marketing and startups began when she worked in a team of nine other business students to build their own unique product and company from scratch in just 3 months. She lead the marketing team during that project which provided her a lot of knowledge and skills in that field. She wanted to use those skills she developed to effectively communicate All in Energy’s missions to those unaware of the energy programs offered in MA.
She began her time with All in Energy during the Summer of 2019 as the Marketing Intern and is excited to be back again this year! She felt that there is still much more she can do to help All in Energy’s mission and loves being a part of the work here. In her position, she manages the social media accounts, finding new ways to raise awareness of our services and the different events our outreach team attends. She only has a few more months left in Boston because she is moving to Seattle in the summer to work full time at Amazon, and wanted to spend it continuing her work at All in Energy.
Melaku Tachbele, Web Development Intern
Melaku is a student from Bunker Hill Community College. He is in his final semester and will graduate in May with A.S in Information Technology. He will be transferring to a four-year college to get his B.A in information technology and specialize with Web App Development.
He moved to the United States four years ago along with his family. He supports his family while attending Bunker Hill Community College. Moving to America opened up an opportunity to follow his passion and interest in the field of programming. In the future, he wants to work as a freelancer to help small business owners expand their reach to show their work to the world through a website here in the U.S as well as in Ethiopia. He also wants to give back to the community he grew up in by teaching a programming language needed to develop a website.
He is excited to join the All In Energy marketing team this spring as his first job experience in the field. He will be focusing on the reorganization and redesign of our website.
Elidijon (Jon) Tafa, Graphic Design Intern
Jon will be graduating in May from BHCC with an associate degree in Visual Design. His educational background includes an MA in Architecture from the Polytechnic University of Tirana in Albania. He believes that education is the key to success, and he's trying his best to integrate his passion as an architect and a graphic designer to help others. To be a good graphic designer you have to be a good communicator, communicate your ideas and love to be part of the teamwork. He loves to draw, to sketch buildings while walking or while having a coffee. That’s his passion, his mind race with creativity and questions. Designing is in itself a fulfilling creative pursuit, trying to have a style beyond the typical work. He loves challenges, working with people, new ideas and interacting with everything new. He’s full of passion and zest and a big coffee lover.
With all that’s going on in the world, he is becoming a promoter for inclusive clean energy, that’s what dragged him to be part of the organization. He will be assisting the organization by being the Communication and Marketing intern, by producing graphics materials for the residents that All In Energy will be serving.
Erik Barrios, Finance and Operations Intern
Erik is a 19 year old Colombian-American student, raised in Dorchester, Boston. He is now in his first year at Bunker Hill Community College as an aspiring accountant student, attempting to secure his associates degree. Erik has a special connection to his roots having an advanced knowledge in Spanish communications. He began as a Finance Operations Intern early at All in Energy in March with a special enthusiasm in working with a nonprofit goal-orientated small organization. He has a strong devotion to taking care of what pertains to not only him, but the people of the world, which is clean and affordable energy. His goal is to be the happiest he can be at all time regardless of the situation.
As the semester comes to a close, we will be saying goodbye to our current CfSI fellows as they continue their careers in Business Administration and Computer Science.
This internship was the first taste in the management side of my career choice and it allowed me to better understand my strengths and weaknesses. I ran the social media outlets as we pushed out into the Cambridge area. I was able to host and attend multiple events, being a great help to All In Energy. I also learned some helpful skills when it comes to marketing and design, as well as the ability to juggle multiple projects and communicate with different organizations to set up partnerships and raise money.
I am glad that I was able to use my computer science skills for something bigger than himself. I interned at All In Energy as Data Analysis fellow to help the organization build their customer management system specifically using Salesforce. Through the course of the semester, I felt like I belonged, watching All In Energy grow exponentially and use the system I helped build as one of the important pieces. I hope the organization will grow even more so more people can benefit from what All In Energy provides.
The AiE team is happy to announce our FIVE runners that will be running and fundraising for us.
