My name is Fernanda Cabrera Arroyo. I am a senior at Texas State University and I’m studying adverting with a minor in art. I am originally from Mexico but have lived most of my life in The Woodlands, Texas.  My hobbies include dancing, cooking and photography. By being a social media intern for Komen Austin I hope to gain professional experience that will help me in my future career.

Erin

Erin Johnson

My name is Erin Johnson and I am a (super) senior at the University of North Carolina at Greensboro studying Public Health with a minor in Business Administration. I was born in New York but raised in Hillsborough, North Carolina for the majority of my life. I am hoping to learn more about the ins and outs of a non-profit organization and hope to gain experience in recruiting through multiple outlets. After I graduate, I hope to start a full time career in Human Resources and recruiting. In my spare time, I love to run and play soccer!

Klarisa

Klarisa Montoya

My name is Klarisa Montoya and I am currently a Sociology major and English minor at Texas State University in San Marcos. I am an active member of Sigma Lambda Gamma, whose philanthropy is Susan G. Komen, and I have members in my family who was impacted by breast cancer. Therefore, it is very rewarding to intern with Susan G. Komen and help the cause. I enjoy fundraising since it is important for Susan G Komen to receive funds to help patients receive the examinations and procedures that are needed to fight their cancer. I also enjoy networking with other companies so that they may join in with millions of others and fight the cause as well. Another reason why I enjoy fundraising is because I enjoy planning and creating fundraising events, though it is much hard work, I enjoy seeing the outcome from the events and how it will help the cancer society.

Kayla

Kayla Rodriguez

El Paso native Kayla Rodriguez is a junior attending Texas State University majoring in public relations with a minor in communication studies. She hopes to gain leadership skills and a better understanding for the necessities to strive in her profession from her internship. Kayla wants to leave a lasting impression on Susan G. Komen and aspires to work in entertainment/lifestyle public relations after graduation. She loves to blog or whip up a home-cooked meal on her free time.

Katie

Katie Cameron

My name is Katie Cameron and I am a senior public relations major in the Texas Media program at The University of Texas at Austin graduating in December 2016. I enjoy working with data and formulating solutions and recommendations for potential markets. I am excited to join the team as an Operations Intern at Susan G. Komen Austin and believe it will greatly benefit my future career. I am looking forward to learning more about Komen Austin and have been inspired for years by the organization that strives to empower women and save lives across the country.
