Lauren Warfield

Class of 2020

My name is Lauren Warfield, and I am a junior at Palm Desert High School. I continually challenge myself with the rigorous classes that Palm Desert offers, as I have taken many different AP and Honors courses.

I also participate in many different organizations and clubs found throughout Palm Desert High School, such as Friends for Change, California Scholarship Federation, the Varsity Girls’ Soccer Program, and the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. In addition, I am currently the rising secretary for the California Scholarship Federation.

Apart from school, I am also very involved in my community. I continually volunteer at cancer treatment homes and rescue missions. In addition, I have been a girl scout for eight years and have achieved my bronze award.

I am very excited to be working with the International Business Internship Program and to see what is to come. I believe that experiences like these are not only once in a lifetime, but a way for high school kids to make an impact on a global level.

Class of 2020

My name is Aesia Garban and I am a junior at Palm Desert High School in California. At school, I strive to better myself every day by taking difficult Honors and AP courses and maintaining a high GPA.

In addition to my schoolwork, I take part in a few extracurricular activities offered at school, including varsity softball and soccer. These activities have allowed me to build relationships and teamwork skills that I hope I can use in this program. Additionally, I participate in Link Crew, a program in which student leaders work to help other students succeed.

Outside of school, I enjoy playing sports and volunteering. I also love spending time with my friends and family when I’m not doing homework.

I am honored to have the privilege of working with the International Business Internship Program. This is a unique opportunity and I hope that my team and I can make a difference in people’s lives around the world.

Our Solutions

Solution 1

The problem that the team recognized in Muhammad’s business was his need to consult with others in order to have the car diagnosed, which consequently uses too much money, time, and resources.

In order to alleviate this issue, the team decided to utilize a record keeping system. This would allow Muhammad to review each car and determine if it had a problem that he had encountered before. That way, he would not have to take it somewhere else to get it diagnosed and could immediately begin repairing the car.

The team started to create a simple and comprehensible template that could easily be completed by Muhammad and any of his employees, including the problem with the car, the diagnosis, the cost for the customer, the expenses, and the profit.

In addition, since literacy is a major issue where Muhammad lives, the team also planned to find a way for the employees to add photos to help eliminate words and any potential complications.

After sharing the template with a translator and revising the template, the students have begun designing an app that features its same components, hoping to allow Muhammad and his employees to access the information on their mobile devices and insert pictures of the cars and repairs.

Fortunately, Muhammad and his business are thriving from the assistance of the Palm Desert IBIP team. These hardworking students were able to solve Muhammad’s problem and improve his business, making a lasting impact on the lives of everyone in the community with the help of Leadership Initiatives.
