Congratulations to our intern of the week, Leslie Rosas!
Leslie is from Des Plaines, a Northwest suburb of Chicago and is studying Organizational Communications at Bradley University. She is currently interning for Caterpillar and while she doesn’t quite know what she wants to be in her future, she does now that she wants to do something she loves and makes a difference in the world for the better.
When not working hard, Leslie enjoys going out with friends, eating, shopping, and also spending some time to herself. Although she misses her friends who are back home for the summer, Leslie is excited to spend another summer here in Peoria because of all the small shops and local businesses nearby.
Leslie also interned at the GPEDC, where she played a vital role in the Shop Local 365 regional branding campaign. Her hard work helping to launch and maintain the momentum of Shop Local 365 was one of the many bright spots of her internship.
Be sure to catch Leslie and other interns from the Greater Peoria area at our next intern mixer this Thusday from 5:00-6:30pm. She loves meeting new people and the chance to see all the talented interns in Peoria (and, of course, the free food). Feel free to reach out to her this summer and, in her words, “we are all in this together”. Can’t wait to see you there!
