Lindsey Gradowski

Class of 2020

My name is Lindsey Gradowski, and I am a junior at Washington-Lee High School. I am serving as the Team Lead and the Nigeria Partnership Chair for this team. I am a full International Baccalaureate student. In my spare time, I enjoy acting in school plays and competing for my school’s debate team.

In addition, I have a strong fondness for working with children. I work as a Stage Manager for a local community children’s theatre, tutor elementary school children in a low-income housing area, and mentor underclassmen for the Virginia Junior Academy of Science.

During school breaks, my family makes travel a priority, which has exposed me to new ideas and shaped the way that I look at the world. The International Business Internship Program has given me an amazing opportunity to grow my world view even more and to be able to make an impact on a level I never thought possible.

My name is Atti Rattelman, and I am a junior at Washington-Lee High School in Arlington, Virginia. I am serving as both the Fundraising and the Special Projects Chair of our contingent of the International Business Internship Program.

My passion is athletics, and I compete in running and swimming. I also play numerous team sports including soccer and Ultimate Frisbee. I also love singing and performing, and I have been in several plays and musicals. I coach swim lessons and referee youth soccer in an attempt to pass on my knowledge and my love for athletics.

I am excited to join the IBIP program to not only take advantage of the learning opportunity it presents to me, but to help others better their lives as well.

Class of 2020

My name is Juliana Logan. I’m a Junior at Washington Lee High School. I’m currently serving as the Media Chair for our team. In school I take Advanced Placement and International Baccalaureate classes.

I play the violin and the viola. In school I play for our highest level orchestra, called Chamber. Outside of school I play the viola in a string quartet group called Crescendo. I have taken part in many in-school musicals, and love to sing. I love art, and frequently make clay sculptures. I also love books, and I frequently both read and write them.

I’m really excited to be in the IBIP Program because I feel that if I can work with this team of people to accomplish something great, I can work with any team to do anything.

Our Solutions

Solution 1

The Washington-Lee IBIP team is working to improve the lives of the orphans through improving personal hygiene. They’re creating videos in collaboration with Netflix’s film crew, with step by step instructions to illustrate exactly how to keep clean. These videos will also include information on why keeping clean is important, and will be confirmed by a doctor. Lindsey’s team chose to create videos in order to accurately show every aspect of hygiene, as well as narrate as they go.

Thanks to Tamar, the orphans can understand English. This makes it much easier to write the script for the videos. The videos contain several topics, including washing the body and hands, cleaning teeth, and the consequences of bad hygiene. The goal of this process is to improve the orphan’s healthiness, and increase their self-esteem as well.
