We are so lucky to have a very talented crop of associates this spring.

I am from Buffalo, New York. I am currently a junior at Fordham University. I study International Political Economy and Economics at school, while I also minor in Business Administration. During my first two and a half years at Fordham, I captained the school’s sailing team and also worked at the Career Services office. I am absolutely thrilled to be joining the team at Uncharted Play. I am particularly excited to be working at social enterprise with such a wonderful and meaningful mission. I also think that the practical experience of working here will complement my strong academic background that will be highly beneficial for my future. Lastly, the team and atmosphere at UP are extraordinary which certainly provided a great deal of motivation for me to apply to this position.
I’m originally from North Carolina. I studied math at UNC-Chapel Hill, and have always had an interest in business, and business development. My whole line of family on my father’s side ran eco-tours in Ecuador, so it’s something that runs in my family. When I first heard of the SOCCKET, I was really surprised. It was a simple, but brilliant idea that made a lot of sense. I became interested in interning in business development at Uncharted Play because I wanted to work on something that I could care about and sincerely get behind. SOCCKET was exactly that. SOCCKET is addressing a real need, and I am truly excited by the potential for impact that it has. I feel privileged to work on such a neat invention, and look forward to seeing where the SOCCKET will be a few months and years down the road.
I’m originally from Boston and recently moved to NYC after graduating with my master’s in International Development and Management from Lund University in Sweden. I have previous experience working with NGOs involved in youth development, health and human services, and human rights–most recently in Cambodia. I’m passionate about social enterprise and the intersection of technology and international development. I’m excited to join Uncharted Play and get involved with M&E and impact strategy!
I am currently a junior industrial design student at Pratt Institute. I wanted to work as an intern for Uncharted Play for several reasons. My passion is to use design and creativity as a tool to help others, and better their lives. Being a former high school soccer player, I love the idea of designing soccer balls as well!
I am currently a senior at NYU, majoring in philosophy with a minor in business studies. What motivated me to become an associate for Uncharted Play was the idea of leveraging technology to address issues prevalent in the world today. I believe that Uncharted Play’s mission to incorporate solutions into fun activities is a great way to address socioeconomic issues with minimal backlash by the public. Also, the Uncharted Play environment is a great environment to learn about the different aspects of a starting business, from product development to its social, marketing, and business strategies. I enjoy reading, snowboarding, and all things green or glow-in-the-dark.
I’m originally from Shanghai, China and am now a graduate student at NYU in Media Studies. Back in China I interned in various media entities as an assistant and a copywriter. I’m very excited to be joining the UP team for my first internship in the States, and I’ll be working closely with Alison as a social media associate to make our social media channels awesome!
