Read below about some of our interns’ experiences with Welcoming Atlanta!  

“Getting the opportunity to intern with the Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs will always be one of the greatest experiences I have received. I am fortunate to have been able to work at an office where I was surrounded by individuals so passionate and devoted to not only their personal work but their community as well. The great lessons and wisdom they have shared will remain with me for the rest of my journey. Through this experience, I gained insight on what it really means to be a leader dedicated to a vision and cause that will forge the path for a greater future. ” – Roshaine Elliot, summer 2016 & 2017 intern
