My name is Judi Bustamante, the new admin and outreach intern at Indiana INTERNnet for spring 2020. I am very excited to be a part of such a brilliant organization. I graduated from Indiana University – Indianapolis, with a Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Journalism with a concentration in public relations and a creative writing minor.
While at IUPUI, I was a member of the Native American Student Alliance and Public Relations Student Society of America. I also helped the Latinas Welding Guild with videography, photography and anything media related in my spare time.
My family and I moved to Indianapolis when I was an infant, so I call myself an honorary Hoosier. I am a first-generation Nicaraguan-American and am fluent in Spanish. Cruising the city by bike, especially at night, is one of my favorite pastimes. I am a fan of old architecture and love what the city is doing with the preservation of longstanding structures around Indianapolis. I also enjoy reading and learning about things that I have an interest in, like learning to code and refine my cooking skills for example.
When I am not at Indiana INTERNnet, I am at my other internship at the Little Red Door Cancer Agency. My passion for helping others has led me to work in several non-profit organizations, healthcare, and the medical field. I am eager to help with the 2020 IMPACT Awards. I love that I get to use my creative side while delivering important messages out to the world.
