This Tuesday (June 5th, 2012) Allison Herbert joined Operation Hope in South Africa as an intern in the Cape Town office for the summer. Allison is pursuing her undergraduate degree in Finance and Economics at the University of Louisville in Louisville, Kentucky. She has started exploring her job opportunities with internships in event planning, non-profits, and energy.
Allison is involved in various activities on campus including her sorority, Student Government, admissions, and many business oriented clubs. She spent last summer studying economics abroad in Prague, Czech Republic.
She hopes to gain the knowledge of how Operation Hope operates as an organization and ways to facilitate the Banking on Our Future Program to others from her experiences while in South Africa.
