FAME Welcomes University of Pittsburgh MSW/MPH student, India Hunter, as the 2018-2019 FAME Intern
My name is India Renae Hunter and I am originally from Dayton, Ohio. I received my B.S. in Exercise Science at the University of Pittsburgh in 2016. During my gap year, I served with Pittsburgh Public Allies doing community service and working within the non-profit sector. Continuing my education at Pitt, I am a current second year master’s student at the University of Pittsburgh, pursuing degree areas in Public Health and Social Work. My concentrations are in Behavioral and Community Health Sciences and Direct Practice, respectively.
My professional interests include youth empowerment and education, child and maternal health, and preventative medicine through exercise. On a personal level, I enjoy community organizing, writing, and anything sports related. I hope to one day own my own nonprofit geared towards making wellness practices accessible to marginalized communities.
I wanted to join the FAME team because I believe that education is the key to success, especially for African American Youth. I am looking forward to interning with FAME in order to gain a better understanding of nonprofit management and activities including, but not limited to, program planning, grant writing, fundraising, and administrative duties. However, most importantly, I am excited to hold this position at FAME because I’ll have an opportunity to interact, teach, and learn from the children we serve.
