Meet our intern, Devon

devon

Who are you?

My name is Devon Provo and I am 19 years old. I grew up in Como Park of Saint Paul, but I now attend Occidental College in Los Angeles, where I study Urban & Environmental Policy. I am interested in community organizing and exploring the ways in which cities and quality of life can be improved.

What do you do?

This summer in particular I have been trying to learn how to cook (much to my family’s dismay). I also sing in a Glee Club, hang out with friends and pretend I am flexible enough for yoga poses. At CAPM I have been assisting with the 2011 Education Report. Researching this project has been both eye-opening and rewarding, and I will keep what I have learned in mind as I finish my own educational pursuits.

What has your experience at CAPM been like?

I’ve had a wonderful experience at CAPM. I have been engaged in important work and learned a lot while utilizing my own skills and exploring my areas of interest. The staff members have been so welcoming and I am truly grateful to be a participant in their work.

What motivates you? What are your passions?

I am motivated by the amazing changes I see in the world every day. Rockets, hybrid cars and entire countries around the world joining together in protest… these are the things that inspire me. In addition to urban planning, I am passionate about nature, history and politics.

What else would you like us to know about you?

Despite living in Los Angeles, I stay loyal to Minnesota and do not cheer for the Lakers.

The CAPM staff would like to give a big thank you to Devon for helping us over the summer. Her last day will be next Monday before she returns to CA. We wish you a safe trip and we’ll miss you!

Meet our intern, Dorothy

Hello CAPM blog readers. For the summer, we’ll be introducing the volunteers and interns who have been helping us behind the scenes at the office. This week, meet Dorothy, who is our media intern.

Who are you?
Born a native Hmong Saint Paul Minnesotan, I have always had a deep passion in working with community members.  I am a young beautiful and blissful daughter, sister, and community organizer.

I am currently attending the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse with a major in Communication Studies emphasizing in Broadcast and Digital Media, and a minor in Professional and Organizational Communication.  I have received numerous awards and high praises for her activism work in tackling issues on racism in America, and her involvement within the La Crosse Asian community.

What do you do?
Well, I do many things.  Above all, I like to do things that will help others.  After that, I do things that I love which consists of the following: eating, learning, mentoring students, reading books about and on history, dancing in heels, sleeping, doing things in the snow, and stargazing.

What I most enjoy learning about are different ways of life, languages and cultures.  By learning, I hope to make the world a better place through my participation.

What has your experience at CAPM been like?
My experience at CAPM has been delightful!  I feel so blessed to have met and worked with such intelligent and self-motivated Asian Americans that are passionate about helping others.  It inspires me to keep learning and become better rounded as a person for social change.

Through CAPM, I have also been given the opportunity to meet Asian American artists and leaders in Minnesota.  The experiences and relationships that I’ve made through CAMP will go far with me wherever life takes me.

But I have to say, what I’ve enjoyed most about CAPM is meeting all of the beautiful and intelligent Asian American WOMEN.  It has been the most empowering part of interning for CAPM.  So thank you, thank you, thank you!

What motivates you? /What are your passions?
In short, “When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”

And my awesome family!  My parents worked very hard for their children; I just want to give back to them and do well in life by helping others that are less fortunate.

Anything else you would like people to know about you?
I love eating POP ROCKS!!
