Welcome to Breaktime's First Full-Time Interns!
June 25, 2019
Hello to our Breaktime Family!
We’re ecstatic to show off our very first full-time interns, who are working very diligently in Cambridge this summer to make our mission to help the homeless youth in Boston a reality.
Each one of our four interns brings individuality to our team here at Breaktime, and deserve some recognition!
So without further ado, let’s introduce you to the team.
Meet Grace Sung, one fourth of our Development Analyst Team.
She is a rising junior at the University of Massachusetts Amherst’s Isenberg School of Management and a native of Westborough, MA. Grace is currently pursuing her bachelor’s degree in Marketing and is considering a Journalism minor, as writing is one of her passions. In addition to working as an intern at Breaktime this summer, she is also a free-lance journalist for the UMass Amherst Chapter at HerCampus Magazine and a fashion stylist for Club Monaco in the Prudential Tower in Boston.
At UMass Amherst, Grace delegates the majority of her time towards her extracurricular activities, studying, or spending time with her friends. She is an active member of the Isenberg Women in Business club, the Isenberg Marketing Club, and is a part-time barista at Argo Tea Cafe.
Grace dreams of eventually doing work in the fashion and journalism industries and plans to move to New York City after earning a bachelor’s degree in Marketing from the Isenberg School of Management. At Breaktime, we can rely on Grace to handle conference calls, do any sort of writing for the team, and as always, crack a joke to make the team laugh.
Introducing Laura Skinner, another Breaktime Development Analyst.
Laura is a rising junior at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and is pursuing her bachelor's degree in Communications. Laura is a native of Westborough, Massachusetts and is spending most of her time in Boston for the summer to be a part of the Breaktime team.
At UMass Amherst, Laura works as a Resident Assistant in addition to being an intern for the Labor/Management Workforce Education Department. In her free time, she spends time with her friends and listens to artists such as Kacey Musgraves. After she graduates, Laura plans to stay in the New England area and specifically wants to stay in Communications for her career.
At Breaktime, Laura acts as the team’s rock: we can always rely on her for getting any emails or outreach done! As a friendly and calm person, Laura really gets along with anyone. We’re ecstatic to have her on our development team this year!
Give a warm welcome to Devin Torres, another important portion of the Development Analyst Team.
He is currently a rising junior at Bowdoin College, where he is majoring in Africana Studies and History. At school, Devin works at the Bowdoin College Bursar Office and partakes in Bowdoin College Men’s Rugby, the Sex Project, and Stand Up. Devin’s hometown is New Haven, Connecticut, where he worked for a non-profit called LEAP.
At Breaktime, Devin’s known as a man of few words, but also is one of the most hard-working, interesting individuals. We really rely on him for critical fundraising and for laughing at our sub-par jokes.
In his free time, Devin enjoys playing video games, reading great novels, working out, and boxing. For post-college plans, he envisions himself doing activism and social work. We’re so happy to have him on the Breaktime Team this summer!
And last, but not least, say hello to Caitlin Brightman, another key part of the Development Analyst Team.
Caitlin is a rising sophomore studying Marketing at the University of Massachusetts Amherst’s Isenberg School of Management and is pursuing a double major in Graphic Design and Media Production. She is also a member of the Commonwealth Honors College. She is originally from Foxboro, Massachusetts.
At UMass Amherst, Caitlin works as a Student Admissions Representative and Tour Guide. She is active in the UMass Social Entrepreneurship Club and served on the leadership team for this spring’s Social Innovation Conference. She is currently the Head of Advertising for a social entrepreneurship pitch competition, Hult Prize. While home for the summer she directs the Broadway Bound summer program at the Marilyn Rodman Performing Arts Center and is a server at Friendly’s.
In the future, Caitlin plans to continue working for social enterprises and eventually start her own non-profit. She has loved getting to work with such a hardworking team this summer on a project she feels so passionately about.
We hope you’ve been having a fantastic and fun summer! Breaktime thanks you for following along with our progress and for all of the support.
