Have you had any internships? 

As an intern with the J.W. Fanning Institute for Leadership Development last year as a PSO Scholar, I worked with Athens Peer Court and on other youth leadership development projects throughout the semester.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years? 

I see myself in a job I love and living abroad. I see myself continuing to do community outreach in any job I end up in. I’d like to live in cities all over the world so I can make the most of life while experiencing different cultures.

What excites you most about your unit? 

I am excited to continue working with Fanning, and see the long-term impact of public service and outreach.

What do you hope to get out of this experience? 

I hope to develop better public speaking skills, and learn ways to best interact with others on collaborative projects.

Why is service and outreach important to you? 

It’s important to be involved in the community you live in, especially if you can contribute something to help them.

Fun fact: 

While I was in Thailand, I received my scuba diving certificate!

Lee completed the PSO Student Scholar program last year, and has extended her internship with the Fanning Institute.

The Public Service & Outreach Student Scholars program provides the opportunity for a select cohort of undergraduate students to explore and engage with the University of Georgia’s public service and outreach (PSO) mission. Supported by the Office of the Vice President for Public Service and Outreach, and administered through the Office of Service-Learning, this year-long program is intended to provide deeper understanding of PSO’s purpose, breadth, and depth through supervised service experiences with PSO and communities, to help students link their public service experiences with their career and educational goals, and to create a community of student scholars who understand the role of public service in Georgia and more broadly.
