Within the first few days, I found myself traveling across all five boroughs, gaining a passion and love for the city I had never experienced before during my four years at NYU.  I learned skills I never thought I would be able to do: from writing grant proposals, to contacting city councilmen, to helping teach mural classes in the Bronx.  Jeremy’s encouragement and training paired with my activities as an intern gave me practical opportunities to put what I was learning about into practice.
