For the Spring 2018 semester, Raqhelle has served as the Copywriter Intern for
One Step Initiative. She has been able to find creative and engaging content for OSI’s supporters and followers in order to raise awareness about the importance and benefits of obtaining an education beyond borders. Raqhelle has a passion for understanding the economic forces that shape the global marketplace and creating cross cultural connections. Her world travel experiences include Costa Rica, Cuba, Mexico, South Africa, London, and Italy.
This summer, she will embark on an internship abroad with Hilton, and will be placed in either Cartagenas, Colombia or Costa Rica. She looks forward to expanding her Spanish language, and learning the diversity of operations in Hilton’s corporation abroad in order to funnel her career goals as an International Analyst. For 6 weeks, Raqhelle will be immersed in a new culture, and apply her communication, creativity, drive and initiative that OSI has graciously welcomed and appreciated this past semester.
