Goodbye to Imane, and thank you!

For the second year in a row, Foodshare’s Community Network Builders, Jim Palma and Beatrice Maslowski, welcomed an American Savings Foundation summer intern. Imane Alexander accepted the position of Hartford Neighborhood Data Dashboard Intern in late May. Her 9-week assignment included breaking down Hartford city-wide facts into neighborhood facts, as well as aggregating school and census tract data into neighborhood facts. The end results of her project was an accurate database of facts about all of Hartford’s 17 neighborhoods.

Imane gave a presentation to the Foodshare staff, including President and CEO, James Arena-DeRosa, as well as members of Hartford’s Hunger Action Teams on August 2nd. We had a gathering with Foodshare staff after the presentation to say thanks to Imane for her outstanding work. She was presented with a Foodshare “Swag Bag,” and a parting gift.

In just a few weeks, Imane will be returning to UCONN as a junior studying Statistics, working as an East Campus Resident Assistant, and will continue to participate in JP Morgan’s national mentoring program. In her spare time, Imane is Vice President of, and dances with, the Nubian Dance Team at UCONN, which entertains and educates people about African and Caribbean culture through dance.

Imane, it has been a pleasure to work with you this summer, best of luck!!
