Sana has been assisting with community engagement around our Shakespeare in the Streets and SHAKE 38 Projects, analyzing scripts, researching business and community events, and visiting our summer camp programming. She asks intelligent questions while remaining task-oriented. We are excited to know that we can serve as a resource for her as she explores her interests in writing and arts administration.

(Sana’s internship supervisor)

During summer and fall 2014, Sana participated in the Scholarship Foundation’s paid Community Internship Program, a collaborative partnership between the Foundation, Equifax and community agencies.

Sana interned with Shakespeare Festival St. Louis. She transitioned from providing administrative support during the summer to a community engagement role in the fall. She helped prepare for Shakespeare in the Streets, a unique theatrical performance that integrates a neighborhood’s history and story into a Shakespeare performance which will take place in the Old North St. Louis neighborhood in 2015. During the interview phase of the project, Sana enjoyed the opportunity to connect with Old North residents.

Sana graduated from the University of Missouri-St. Louis in December 2014 with a bachelor’s in English.
