Meet Morgan Franklin’s Summer 2019 Intern
Liz H. is a high school senior and a Morgan Franklin Fellow. Her guidance counselor at school heard about MFF and knew Liz would be a good fit for their pilot program.
“At age 14, I wanted to get a job. Growing up, I lived in Section 8 housing, and my parents were on disability. I wanted to know how I could make money. When I found MFF, I knew it was going to be a good fit,” Liz said.
Liz is a Fellow, but she impressed the MFF team so much that she became the summer 2019 intern. Liz attended meetings and assisted the team where needed, while still balancing a part-time job as an assistant manager at a large grocery store, and she still had time for swimming in the summer.
Her goal for the internship: write a micro-course for MFF students. She completed three!
The first digs into topics like: What is a resume? What is your biography? How do you write them? How should they look, feel and be presented to others?
The second looks at the basics of taxes, what it means to “do your taxes,” the differences between W2 and 1099 income and the various kinds of taxes that affect all of us.
