Today we feature Mary Catherine. (You met her already here.)


mary_catherineDescribe your internship so far. In 140 characters or less.

A-ma-zing. Love every part of working at MC from the staff who is like a family to the single purpose of working to make an impact in Africa, every part of this internship is stellar.

Mary Catherine works well in 140 characters. Follow her on Twitter.

What projects are you working on?

So many, that’s what I love about Mocha Club! My absolute favorite is an exciting new MC venture working with women in Ethiopia and celebrity supporters — needless to say, it’s thrilling and we are beyond exciting for it to launch. Stay tuned MCers, this one is huge.

What has been the biggest surprise?

How involved we are. Barrett frequently comes into the mochatern room to hash out ideas and brainstorm with us. They use us as the dreamers and we love that 🙂

In one word, describe each of the other interns.

  • Katie — a guaranteed fun time.
  • Brent — the singing lone ranger
  • Kourtney — the sweetheart. so precious!
  • Amy — a brilliant creative.

Who is your favorite Mocha Club artist?

Wertz and Barnes will have to throwdown for this one. I first heard of Mocha Club from their shows!

What has been the coolest part of the internship so far?

The people by far. The Mocha Club team is unbelievable and being a part of a community that is truly anchored it’s mission statement has been incredible to contribute to and learn from.

What do you hope to accomplish by the end of the summer?

By the end of the summer, I hope to be able to look back and see the ripple effect of our contribution within the organization extending externally and impacting Africa.


The Mochaterns have started their own blog. Crazy kids. So keep up with their daily experiences, plans, and hijinks there.
