Why were you excited about interning with the Mocha Club?
My dad has been member of Mocha Club since 2007 when he signed up at a Sanctus Real concert and was the one to tell me all about this great organization. I’ve traveled to Guatamala and Honduras and love people who have the courage to go into places God wants them to be and help others. And knowing Mocha Club was here in Nashville, doing just that, I was excited to be apart of it.
What has been the biggest surprise? I was surprised to get to see the depth we go with all the projects we support. It’s more than giving women the resources they need survive but it’s creating a holistic approach to helping them.
What projects are you most proud to be apart of? I’m really proud of the new blog. It was awesome being a part of researching and conducting a SWOT analysis and getting input into the creation and design.
What’s playing in your headphones when you work? Steve Moakler. The Fray. Drew Holcomb and the Neighbors – just came out with a new record! And I’ve had One Republic’s “Feel Again” on repeat.
How do you take your mocha [coffee]? My go-to drink is the Caramel Whip at the Well.

Why were you excited about interning with the Mocha Club? I went to Tanzania when I was a junior in high school and I’m excited to be around people who are also passionate about Africa.
What has been the biggest surprise? After looking at our artist sponsor roster, I was surprised at how many artists are actually involved with the Mocha Club!
What projects are you most proud to be apart of? The new blog – it’s so legit!
What’s playing in your headphones when you work? Fallout Boy’s new record “Save Rock and Roll”. Twenty-One Pilots.
How do you take your mocha [coffee]? No coffee – I don’t like warm drinks. So my drink of choice would have to be cranberry juice.
