IMG_4032-1We are delighted to introduce our newest intern, Aya Harasawa, an undergraduate at the University of Tennessee. Along with interning at MDC, she is spending her senior year pursuing a degree in public relations with a minor in business administration, serving as an Executive Chairman for Delta Zeta Sorority and working part-time at Copper Cellar. Outside of working and school, Aya loves traveling and experiencing new cultures. She has been to nine different countries, including Italy through the University of Tennessee’s study abroad program. Growing up traveling internationally and being raised bicultural has given Aya the vision to pursue a career in international communications.

In the past, Aya’s work and student experiences have developed her skills in interpersonal communication, management and problem solving. In her leadership role in Delta Zeta, Aya has worked extensively with event management, planning, risk management and prevention. She is excited to test her skills while interning at Metropolitan Drug Commission.

Aya’s hopes her time at MDC is not only to grow her management and planning skills, but also to gain more experience in writing and media relations. She is excited to learn and assist in social media outreach, as well as working with the Knoxville community against substance abuse.

Welcome to our team Aya! We look forward to seeing the work you accomplish this semester.
