Enloe Magnet High School
International Business Internship Program
Our Life-Changing Project
Class of 2020
My name is Avani Deshpande and I am a high school junior at William G. Enloe High School. This year I am enrolled in multiple Advanced Placement courses and honors classes, along with taking part in my schools Medical Bioscience Academy.
I am in the process of establishing my own nonprofit that sells homemade eco-friendly candles, donating proceeds to the National Foundation for Ectodermal Dysplasias (NFED). Through the nonprofit and NFED, I have received a Presidential Volunteer medal and raised thousands of dollars for treatments and research. Throughout middle and high school, I have been active in Mock Trial, and through Mock Trial have received “Best Lawyer” and “Best Witness” awards. This year I am vice president of the Enloe Slam Poetry club, as well I as a participant in the HOSA program at my high school. At my most recent HOSA competition, I placed top 10 in the state for my event. Currently, I work a part time job at TheCoderSchoolCary (TCSCary), where I teach children from the ages of 6 to 10 the basics of coding (Scratch/Snap type drag and drop). Over the summer I teach week-long Scratch camps at TCSCary, and during the school year, I teach regular classes on Saturdays.
I am looking forward to greatly influencing many lives with the International Business Internship Program, especially because I never thought I would be able to start making an impact on the world in high school, I always thought I would have to be much older before I could even try to effect a change. I am ecstatic to work with my friends and team members, as well as the Leadership Initiatives staff to change the world!
Class of 2020
My name is Olivia Sandy and I am currently a Junior at William G. Enloe Magnet High School. This year I am enrolled in multiple Advanced Placement and Honors classes. In my free time, I enjoy reading, playing music, and socializing with my friends.
I have been a part of the Medical Bioscience Academy and my school for three years helping people in the community and learning how to work with others as part of a team. I plan to continue being a part of the academy through my junior year. In addition to school and MBSA, I have played trumpet and now mellophone in my school’s marching band and have been playing trumpet for six years now. I have also been a counselor for children at my church on multiple occasions.
In high school, I never thought I would get a chance to have a serious impact on someone’s life until after I graduated, but the International Business Internship Program has given me the chance to help people in ways I never would have thought possible while still in school. I am very excited to work with my friends and fellow teammates to help people in other parts of the globe and be able to spread the effects of charitable service. I look forward to communicating and forming relationships with not only people in the new places we come into contact with, but my team members as well.
Class of 2020
My name is Cameron Grey, and I’m currently a junior at William G. Enloe High School. I am involved in a rigorous course load at Enloe, including all honors and AP courses. I am also a member of the AP Capstone program, a program created around the AP courses.
I am involved in a multitude of clubs and teams around my high school. I have been captain of the schools JV soccer team, an avid member of enloes Medical Bioscience academy, and the media chair of my International Business Internship Program team. I have competed in the Lenovo app challenge, placed first in the highest level of the NC State wearable device challenge, and a future participant of the Google Science Fair. I also write poetry, which will be considered for the ELO, Enloe’s literature magazine. I was also chosen as Enloes Leadership Ambassador to represent my school at the HOBY leadership seminar. I am currently employed as a referee for the state of North Carolina, and I work most weekends. One of my largest commitments of my free time, is that for 2-3 hours most Sundays I wake up early, make a large amount of food, and bring it downtown to the Oak City Outreach Center. I volunteer and serve to the homeless and working poor population of downtown Raleigh in hopes that I can improve the lives of the less fortunate of my community. I am also an apprentice of a business owning woodworker, and have sold clipboards made of exotic recycled wood.
I try my best to better the lives of the people around me, while also dedicating myself to having a diverse yet useful set of talents. I hope that IBIP will allow me to attain that goal, and I greatly look forward to helping many people who need it. This program will allow me to help people in ways that I didn't even know I could. Plain and simply, what I look forward to most in IBIP is that I can help those in need.
