Meet Our 2020-2021 Interns

Alexa Moyer is a sophomore at the University of New Haven. I am a Legal Studies major with a concentration in Dispute Resolution. I want to help make college and university campuses a better place for women by helping to give support to the women who are currently on those campuses. I also want to help empower women who have already graduated by spreading information that they can use to make themselves even more successful.

Aimee Ocegueda is currently attending the University of Bridgeport. I am a senior majoring in English with a concentration of Literature. I am also minoring in psychology. An interesting fact about me is that I like to learn foreign languages. For example, I have taken a Mandarin class for 4 years now and I am currently taking Korean and French. I am very excited to be part of the AAUW Internship Program. I cannot wait to explore and learn more about gender equity, and most importantly, put my writing and researching skills into practice.

Cameron Phillips recently joined the AAUW-CT team as a marketing intern. She lives in Waterbury, CT with her family and her two cats. She is currently a senior at the University of New Haven where she is majoring in English with a concentration in writing and minoring in Spanish language and Latin American studies. In addition to her internship, she also works as a tutor at her school’s Writing Center and as a secretary in her school’s Office of the Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences. She also serves as president of the Alpha Sigma Theta chapter of the Sigma Tau Delta International English Honor Society, treasurer of Anime Club, and executive assistant of W.R.I.T.E. Club. As a woman currently enrolled in university, she looks forward to furthering the AAUW’s mission and spreading the word through social media about the organization’s work. She hopes to strengthen important skills (such as writing) needed in her field while also making a difference for women in Connecticut and helping AAUW-CT continue to grow.

Harita Selvaraj is an international student at the University of Bridgeport, Connecticut with a major in English with a concentration in Creative Writing, and a minor in Mass Communications.
