Remote & On the Ground Intern

Shelby is joining us from St. Louis, Missouri via a hybrid internship with both remote and on the ground experiences. Shelby is currently studying at the University of Southern California to get her masters in Public Administration. She has a passion for working with people and experiencing different cultures. She especially enjoys learning about nonprofit management, organisational leadership, and education policy. Shelby hopes to have her own nonprofit someday.

After working with children and school administrators in China, Central America, and her hometown of St. Louis, Shelby was eager for the opportunity to come to Baobuyu. While here, she will create and facilitate teacher workshops, as well as lessons and activities for our students and female empowerment programs. Shelby looks forward to experiencing safaris, rafting and hiking trips, and all Africa has to offer with her new friends at Baobuyu.
