Shannon Bonner '19 (Schnecksville, PA)

Major: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology

Internship: Summer Research Intern, at Penn State Medical College (Hershey, PA)

Olivia Lyman '19 (Mt. Kisco, NY)

Major: International Studies | Minor: Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies

Internship: Health Policy Intern, National Women's Health Network (Washington, D.C.)

Why Olivia chose this internship: Most of my past internships have been focused on global women's rights. Given the political climate, I wanted pursue an internship that focused on domestic politics. The National Women's Health Network has genuinely pushed me to be a better advocate not just for women's rights, but for the LGBTQ+ community, people of color, low-income individuals, immigrant rights and many more vulnerable communities who are disproportionately affected within access to health care. More specifically, I've been focusing on helping the Network become more language inclusive towards transgender and gender non-conforming individuals, given the discriminatory effects that these specific vulnerable communities face within access to health care. I'm learning that there is a lot of work that still needs to be done in our society today, but I'm filled with an immense amount of hope. If you surround yourself with ruthless, resilient, passionate and fearless voices, every day doesn't seem like such a fight. The National Women's Health Network has taught me to be anything but silent, and to always hold positions of power accountable when human rights are on the line. For this, I am forever grateful.
