Motivated by Creative Thinking: An Interview with Caitlin Smith


From October through December 2019, Caitlin Smith interned at CIANA in our Development department. She helped with our fundraising campaigns and political outreach, and also helped develop connections within the broader community. Caitlin spoke with our VISTA, Micah Dicker, about her time at CIANA.

Micah Dicker: How did you decide to intern here at CIANA?

Caitlin Smith: Being out of college and thinking about what’s next, I guess I was considering how I want to utilize my education. And my education was a basis on immigration, global connections, and writing.

MD: What kinds of things did you do in regards to immigration in college?

CS: Not a lot of actual activity was done, but it was a lot of education that I found useful.
