Hello! I’m Celia, one of the new interns for the summer. I’m 22, and I’m from Minnesota. I just graduated from Bryn Mawr College in Pennsylvania. Bryn Mawr is a women’s college, a school that strives to create an environment similar to New Moon Girls—a place where women can grow in the classroom and outside of it; uncover inner potential; and learn how to ‘make a meaningful contribution to the world’!
Because of Bryn Mawr, I know how powerful girl-centered experiences can be! I have grown so much at Bryn Mawr in a community of women, which is such an empowering space—intellectually and emotionally. I want to work with New Moon because New Moon helps girls reach for their dreams and realize their potential to enact change in the world, all while discovering their own unique talents—and this all happens through an encouraging community network of girls and those who support them! I feel very lucky to be part of the New Moon community!
This summer, besides looking forward to all of the fun work I’ll be doing with New Moon, I am also looking for a summer job. I am heading to London in the fall for a Masters program in Publishing, which requires funds—hence the job search! J So far, no luck, but hopefully soon. Cross your fingers for me! Going to London is the first step on the road to my secret dream—a cottage on the Downs in England, where I can raise lots of sheep and fuzzy ponies, just for the pleasure of their company:) Well, and also the first step towards my dream of becoming an editor who works with fiction for girls—I guess that’s important to mention too:)
Other than that, I’m hoping my summer is chock full of outdoor adventures—I love to run, bike, walk our poodles Charley and George, ride my horse Morphy down the trail, and camp in the Boundary Waters. I also want to make time to catch up with all my friends in Duluth—I miss them a lot when I’m in Pennsylvania!
While I have old friends here in Minnesota, I also love to make new friends! I am excited to get to know the girls of New Moon! I hear they are fun, smart, interesting, talented, curious, artistic, creative, beautiful inside and out—among many other fabulous qualities:) Click here to leave a sticker for me! I love getting messages and sending them back—I’ve always been a letter writer, and stickers seem to be the New Moon letter of choice!
