This internship explores fundamental analysis, a method of measuring a public security’s value by assessing qualitative and quantitative factors. Through lectures, readings, and interactive discussions, we will explore the intrinsic value of a security.

EXPECTATIONS AND REQUIREMENTS
The internship will consist of six workshops over Zoom – each ranging from 60 minutes to 90 minutes scheduled over the course of Summer 2022. We will strive to find a time that works for everyone in the internship (expected size is six interns).
Participation and Attendance: Interns are expected to come to the Zoom sessions ready to share and discuss a piece of financial news each time. Attendance is essential (and mandatory) to truly learn and apply the concepts.
Investment Memorandum and Presentation: Interns will be divided in groups with each group completing an investment presentation. Each group will present at least twice during the internship. All group members must participate in the development of the investment presentation. After the first presentation, I will provide edits and suggestions and will ask questions which will enable the interns to dive deeper into the company analysis. This will help the interns improve their work for the final presentation. In addition, I will share numerous resources for interns to continue learning about the financial markets and be ready to perform equity research analysis on their own. All the interns are expected to pose questions to the presenters and help them think of areas that can be improved.
To be considered for this internship, you must submit your resume and one paragraph that provides the description of a company that you are interested in. The description has to be in your own words in plain English. A 10-year old should be able to understand what the company does after reading your description.

Spotify is one of the world's largest music streaming service providers, with over 366 million total listeners. The firm monetizes its users through both a paid premium subscription model and an ad-supported model. Spotify is a popular source for keeping up-to-date with music.
I like the company because:

How the Bloom Box Program was born:
When COIVD-19 hit, we were suddenly in a position where all of our 2020 event work was canceled or postponed. This was 80% of our revenue stream so one can only imagine how this impacted our small business. What we quickly learned was that the entire "food chain" of our beloved floral world was deeply impacted as well. When L.A. shut down back in March, all of our growers were in the middle of their abundant spring season, and without consumers to deliver to, they were forced to dump all of their product. It was devastating. So we at LILLA BELLO were determined to figure out a way to support those farms, keep ourselves working, and continue to bring beautiful blooms to our clients.
Whats a Bloom Box?
With everybody now staying (stuck) at home, we knew that receiving fresh flowers would serve as an amazing emotional pick-me-up. But we went a step farther. In every bloom box, we have curated a selection of cut stems, straight from the small farms. They have not been cleaned or conditioned yet, they are exactly as we would receive them from the farms. Along with your box, you have access to our complimentary tutorial videos which teach you how to clean and condition your blooms. So now, not only do you have beautiful flowers, but you also have an "at-home project" that people can do on their own or with their family. The ultimate self-care project! Most recipients are Bloom box members with a weekly, bi-monthly or monthly subscription. There are 3 size options. Flower selection changes every week.
As an intern of our Bloom Box Program, you will be helping us sort and separate the bundles of flowers for each given week, re-wrap them in our signature wrapping, and box them up for our weekly delivery. You will learn about the different flower specimens, the seasonality of flowers, where they grown and how they perform. You will also need to flex your administrative skills, as organization is a must. Different customers have different size boxes, some are delivered locally and some are packed for shipping. We will need you to make sure everything is sorted perfectly.
Days and Hours:
We deliver Bloom Boxes every Wednesday. Therefore, the prep work is on Tuesday mornings, shipped boxes are sent out on Tuesday at 12n, and loading up for our local deliveries is on Wednesday mornings. The last hour of the day is for clean up.
Wednesdays: 8am - 1pm
Pledge of Responsibility:
With a tumultuous 2020, we gave up our large commercial space and are now working residentially. That said, we will require all interns to commit to a "Pledge of Responsibility" in practicing extra safe social practices, both inside and outside of the workplace, during this COVID-19 Pandemic.
Overview: summer long internship with flexible hours and days to work in a retail atmosphere learning about all aspects of running a store.

Smith, Linda Frye Burnham, and others. It became a hub for the West Coast arm of ACT-UP, an activist grassroots organization addressing the AIDS crisis, and was home to three of the NEA Four (Tim Miller, John Fleck, and Holly Hughes). It also grew out of early performance art, and was the site of publication for High Performance Magazine, and later, Highways Performance Space (still located on the 18th Street Arts Center campus). Once 18th Street incorporated as a non-profit, it became an artist residency program with a wide range of public programs and exhibitions.

WORDTheatre is a nonprofit organization comprised of artists who are passionate about the value of literature to tell stories that awaken us to our humanity and to the complexities we — of various races, nationalities, ages, and backgrounds — face. Stories ignite curiosity about ourselves and others; they engender compassion, foster conversation, and deepen our understanding of questions we may not even think to ask ourselves. We champion writers who are bold enough to take on issues that are relevant and real to us now. Their stories come alive because of the emotional richness of the actors’ performances. Musicians and dancers sometimes lend their talents. There is an alchemy to WORDTheatre collaborations that make manifest the transformative power of storytelling.
WORDTheater is looking for interns to help research and map out study guides to accompany their extensive library of podcasts and other recordings, and to assist in the development area.

We are founded under 3 core beliefs:
applying the science of child development can give all kids a boost
play is the foundation of development
Play is at the core of child development, providing children with an array of learning opportunities. At Play 2 Progress, we create both individualized and group enrichment opportunities in a nurturing, safe, and fun environment where children can flourish. Individual sessions are custom-designed to help kids reach their unique learning goals through effective programs disguised as play sessions. Group sessions are also custom-designed for learning goals – and the group provides opportunities to teach children how to respond to emotions, work effectively in a team, communicate needs and build friendships.
it takes a village
Play 2 Progress all started with a simple idea.
Allie was finishing her occupational therapy clinicals in Chicago (while living on her best friend's couch) when she came home one day frustrated with the quality of toys available on the market to use in her sessions. There had to be a way to fix it.

What are ‘science-based targets’?
Science-based targets provide a clearly-defined pathway for companies to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, helping prevent the worst impacts of climate change and future-proof business growth. Targets are considered ‘science-based’ if they are in line with what the latest climate science deems necessary to meet the goals of the Paris Agreement – limiting global warming to well-below 2°C above pre-industrial levels and pursuing efforts to limit warming to 1.5°C.
What is the purpose of the initiative?
The Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi) mobilizes the private sector to take urgent climate action. By guiding companies in science-based target setting, SBTi is enabling the private sector to tackle global warming while seizing the benefits and boosting their competitiveness in the transition to a zero-carbon economy. The SBTi’s vision is for science-based target setting to become the new normal, creating a thriving economy in harmony with the natural world that sustains us all.
