Alero Oyinlola (C'22) has been working at the Berkley Center as a student assistant since she started at Georgetown. She supports the American Pilgrimage Project, a high-profile project carried out in partnership with StoryCorps, and said this of her experience:
"I became a student assistant as a freshman; my skills and experience were quite limited. In the past two years, serving as a student assistant has allowed me to develop skills in project management, including: research, outreach, and stakeholder engagement. Further, the center’s staff and fellows have provided me with opportunities for professional development and growth. This summer, I will be interning at Facebook and I am convinced that securing the internship is largely attributable to skills acquired at the Berkley Center."
