We would like to introduce and welcome our new interns for this Spring, Kendall Coker and Sydni Dobson!
My name is Kendall Coker and I am one of the Public Relations interns for Eastern North Carolina Stop Human Trafficking Now. I am a junior public relations major at East Carolina University and am from Holly Springs, North Carolina. I love the beach and enjoy snorkeling and scuba diving. The issue of human trafficking is relatively new to me, but once I found out how common it is, especially in North Carolina, I wanted to learn more and to be able to help make a difference. After college I want to start a career in a public relations or a marketing related field.
My name is Sydni Kym Dobson and I am the other Public Relations intern for Eastern North Carolina Stop Human Trafficking Now. I am a senior Journalism major at East Carolina University. I am originally from Durham, North Carolina and enjoy traveling with my friends and eating at new restaurants. Growing up I was always aware of the issue of human trafficking, but never really knew how to get involved in bringing awareness to this issue. I’ve learned that it is not just an issue outside of the United States and is something that we must attack early on to prevent it from happening. I am looking forward to raising awareness about how to spot any person who might fall victim to human trafficking and how to educate others on what they should do if faced with the situation. I am excited about making a difference here in North Carolina.
