As the year comes to a close LDIR says goodbye to one of our amazing interns, Vanessa Obispo. Vanessa was an integral part of the 2012 For the Love of Justice planning committee, the dedicated leader of the staff wellness team, and an overall inspiration to everyone at the LDIR program. Her hard work and love of social justice has helped to shape LDIR throughout the past year, and her energy and presence will be greatly missed.
While Vanessa has truly impacted each of us at LDIR, and the sustainability and growth of the overall program, Vanessa has grown from her experience in many ways as well. “I’m proud of the growth I’ve had as an agent of movement building. After the year I’ve had interning here, I know that I’m a more conscientious and empowered individual than before.”
Although we are sad to see her go, we know that she will do great things in the future, and are honored to have worked with her.
