Hello! On this weblog, you’ll be listening to much more from me, Linnea Teske. I’m a freshman learning political science, and I simply joined the Wisconsin Microfinance group as the brand new Media Intern! I really feel so fortunate to have the ability to work for such a beautiful group, and in assist of such an incredible trigger. I’ve been keen about making a distinction since I used to be in highschool; my dream job has at all times been to make an impression on some a part of the world – and on this place, it’s clear how I’m doing that. At Wisconsin Microfinance, which paves the highway to enterprise success for underprivileged ladies in deprived communities, I’ve the possibility to be part of one thing greater than myself. And I’m so excited for it!

Definitely, my new place at Wisconsin Microfinance is completely different from some other job I’ve had. In my hometown of Campbellsport, WI, the place the cows nearly outnumber the folks, I labored as a barista in an area espresso store. Now, going to school within the state’s capital and having a job that’s primarily on my pc, it looks like each facet of my life has modified. And now I get to assist ladies (and males) change their very own lives in much more dramatic methods than mine has. My enthusiasm for the job goes even past the wonderful trigger that this group stands for; I completely love to jot down, and this place permits me to jot down practically on daily basis in regards to the distinction that Wisconsin Microfinance is making throughout the globe.

In my first semester at UW Madison, I took a number of lessons which have re-shaped my views on worldwide poverty and humanitarian support. My favourite class was a race-based sociology course, which taught me extra in regards to the poverty cycle, and in regards to the troublesome third-world circumstances that persons are dwelling in everywhere in the globe. Not solely did the category make me really feel infinitely extra lucky for the issues I’ve, but it surely additionally made me wish to make a distinction firsthand. And after studying extra in regards to the Wisconsin Microfinance mission and the wonderful individuals who work right here, I really feel like I’m lastly doing that.

Exterior of labor, I like to color and draw. When you noticed me in individual, I’d most likely be sketching or writing away on my laptop computer. I’m tremendous keen about issues like music, artwork, films, and social justice points. Please, be happy to achieve out to me at lrteske@wisc.edu if in case you have any questions on me or the group. I’m already scheduling time to speak with an area Madison highschool Microfinance Membership, and I’d like to schedule time with some other college or neighborhood group to share my pleasure!
