Caitlin Herrera, Intern
Caitlin is currently a student at the University of Georgia studying finance. She comes from a very close-knit Mexican-American family. They are her absolute everything – her support system and very best friends. She has a major sweet tooth and never says no to a good dessert. She loves to laugh until she cries and belts out songs while driving in the car. Dreaming big is a hobby of hers and she firmly believes that you can do anything when you put your mind to it.
She believes we have the ability to impact so many people by simple interactions. Her life goal is to be able to give back to the community because that is her true passion. There is no greater reward than filling someone else’s bucket.
This summer, Caitlin will be helping with our grant applications, budget and social media.
Kimmy Crickette, Intern
Kimmy is absolutely ECSTATIC to be a part of such a wonderful project.
Half American, half Italian, she currently is a UCLA student, a sister, a goof, a klutz, and a lover of all things colorful, hoping to one day be a teacher. She loves both the sweet and the savory, the feeling right before falling asleep, history factoids, and the arrivals gate in airports. Old couples pluck at her heartstrings, the smell of books make her feel calm, and everything about beaches at dusk make her feel content.
There is so much joy, comfort and camaraderie in the fact that there is no emotion we hold that another human being is not also capable of feeling and encouraging us through; that is what The Letter Project is to her, and she is so grateful that it exists.
This summer, Kimmy is handling our Ambassador Program!
Margaret Anderson, Intern
Margaret is a senior at the University of Georgia studying advertising and painting.
She is most at home with a paint brush in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other! She believes that art is incomprehensibly powerful because in one stroke it can create anything, challenge any notion, destroy social and cultural barriers, yet still inspiring laughter.
She aspires to having a career that allows her to channel her creative passions into everything that she does.
She is excited to be a part of the letter project because she believes in the power of encouragement that words can have, and is excited to be a part of a project that positively impacts women.
This summer, she is helping with events and project management.
Rachael Dier, Intern
Rachael is a 20-year-old day dreamer attempting to pass as an adult. Born and raised in Alpharetta, Georgia, she is currently earning a Bachelor of Arts in English with a New Media Certificate at The University of Georgia. She hopes to one day combine her passions of content creating and serving the community.
An avid book worm and caffeine addict, the perfect morning for Rachael would be spent in one of Athen’s local coffee joints with a Hardy or Walker novel keeping her company.
Over the past few years, Rachael has been incredibly fortunate to be able to meet inspiring people who have encouraged her to better herself each day and to foster her desire to make the world a better place, one smile at a time. She has taken this on as her mission, and hopes to empower others through words of compassion and comfort.
This summer, Rach is helping us with logo + web design.
