PINC's Internship 2015 Intern
Christiena Auguste - Columbia University
African-American Studies, Business Management, Pre-law
We are super excited to bring on TWO fabulous college interns for the Spring 2015 semester! We’d like to introduce you to Christiena, a freshman at Columbia University. This fabulous native New Yorker initially spoke with Lisette over the phone to discuss the summer internship program. Her charismatic and genuine charm led to a hot chocolate filled in-person meeting a week later. Christiena loves learning and has a passion for law, she will be working on several aspects of research and funding opportunities. Below we have a fun bio about Christiena so you can see why she is going to be a great addition to the PINC family!
Name: Christiena Paulette Auguste
University & degrees/studies: COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY; African-American Studies, Business Management, Pre-law
What are you most excited about when you think of working at PINC?
I think that what PINC stands for is absolutely beautiful and I love how it empowers young women from all across the United States to broaden their horizons and use their skills in an international environment. Lisette (CEO) and I clicked from the first time we met, and if everyone at PINC is like her, I know I'm in for a great time and profound learning experience!
What are you looking forward to learning the most?
I can't wait to learn the different Business Models and the legal inner workings of companies like this one. I would also love to learn how to speak fluent Spanish, but I'll take it one day at a time :)
What do you love most about your college to date? I love how down-to-earth everybody is! I was so worried that everyone was going to be really stuck up, and although there are a few of those people, for the most part everyone here is friendly, relatable, and hard-working.
If you could sit and have coffee with one celebrity dead or alive who would it be? I would definitely sit and have coffee with Oprah, and I would ask her just one question: How can I be you when I get older?
