Think New Mexico
October 14, 2010
I've had an amazing experience interning at Think New Mexico for the past two summers, during which I’ve witnessed firsthand the impact that a dedicated non-profit can have on improving life for New Mexicans. It was very encouraging to work alongside a staff that truly and passionately cares about the well being of New Mexicans, and is willing to work so hard though research and advocacy to actually see results. In addition to the good work I’ve witnessed at Think New Mexico, I also gained substantial of experience as a student intern learning about how non-profits work and also getting a chance to do my own research and contribute my own ideas to initiatives and reports. Think New Mexico creates an atmosphere for interns and volunteers that promotes learning and gives New Mexicans a chance to see how we can make a difference.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
As a student at New Mexico State University, I'm directly impacted and benefitted by Think New Mexico's efforts which helped bring reform and sustainability to the Lottery Scholarship program in the state. As a New Mexico citizen, I also appreciate Think New Mexico's work in repealing the state food tax, and more recently making sure it wasn't re-imposed during the last session. Other successful initiatives like title insurance reform benefit me and other New Mexicans on a daily basis.
