During the Spring 2013 semester, Eurasia Café was blessed with a phenomenal intern team! We want to take the time to share with you who our interns are and the impact they were involved with!
Two of our interns: Mina Habibi, left, and Yesica Goblirsch, right.
Mina Habibi returned for her second semester here at Eurasia Café (as she had interned in the Fall of 2012)! Mina earned a BS in Communication at Missouri State University and is almost finished with her Master of Business Administration, with an emphasis in Marketing. Mina primarily helps with graphic design for social media, promotional materials and events. As a member of our marketing team, Mina helps develop marketing strategy for quarterly promotions and web sales. When asked what highlights she has from her time at Eurasia Café, Mina said “I have absolutely loved being surrounded by team members who love and support me; who genuinely care about me and developing my skills, not just the value I can add to the team. I have been given opportunities here that I would not have gotten anywhere else that have helped shaped me into the designer and marketer that I am now.” We are excited to see how Mina can use her MBA and creative eye to impact the world around her and we are pleased to have Mina joining the team here in the Eurasia Satellite Office starting May 1, 2013!
Yesica Goblirsch joined us for her first term as an intern at Eurasia Café. Yesica is a senior at Evangel University and will be graduating with an International Studies degree and Public Administration concentration. Here at Eurasia Café, Yesica has championed our blog, worked to develop our upcoming Pinterest account and worked on product development. When asked about her highlights from this semester, Yesica said “I love being a part of an office that shares my beliefs and passion for God and reaching His people. I love being a part of a vision that brings hope to people around the world.” In the future, Yesica wants to be overseas working for an organization that brings restoration and hope to hurting and broken people. As far as what Yesica has gained from interning at Eurasia Café, she said “My eyes and my heart were opened to Marketing. I have seen the power that words and stories have and want to use the words God gives me to fufill His ultimate goal. I cannot wait to see how God uses my season at Eurasia Café for His glory!”
Accounting intern Jacob Smith loves coffee as much as we do, especially when it is life-changing coffee!
Jacob Smith joined us for his first semester as an intern this semester. Jacob attends Missouri State University and is an Accounting major. Here at Eurasia Café Jacob helps to keep the books, which includes recording NLRC sales in QuickBooks. One highlight Jacob notes from interning at Eurasia Café is having free coffee three mornings out of the week! Jacob’s goal in life is to be happy and leave things better than he found them. When asked about his experience at Eurasia Café, Jacob said “I have had a valuable experience here in that I learned some things about running a business. Also, it is nice to know that my work eventually helps someone around the world.”
Yi Han, who also goes by Rick, joined us for his first semester at Eurasia Café! Rick Han is a graduate student at Missouri State University and is working towards a Master of Business Administration. Here at Eurasia Café Rick is involved in logistics, where he was able to ship orders, drink coffee he personally ground by himself, perform inventory checks, and complete orders on his own. Rick has a heart to use his business skills to reach out to more people who have not heard about Jesus Christ! Rick is grateful to Yang for being patient, answering all of his questions and taking care of him while he was here at Eurasia Café. When asked why he loved Eurasia Café, Rick said: “I love Eurasia Café because the relationship between everyone in the office is pure and wonderful. We all have the goal of glorifying God.” Rick cannot wait for Eurasia Café to move to its new location on Commercial Street, view the new building and coffee shop, and see how awesome it is! We are excited to have Rick continue on as an intern at Eurasia Café this summer!
Jonathan Jones joined us for his first semester as an intern at Eurasia Café! He is currently attending Evangel University and majoring in Film with a minor in Spanish. Here at Eurasia Café, Jonathan is working to support Eurasia’s video presence. Thus far, Jonathan has created a motion graphic video explaining the basics of Eurasia and how people can get involved. When asked what his highlights for the semester are, Jonathan’s reply was “working with the people here has been great! It’s great to work in such a friendly and encouraging environment.” Somewhere in the future, Jonathan wants to use digital media for missions as he has a passion to serve missionaries with film and photography. Through interning at Eurasia Café, Jonathan has gleaned a greater understanding of social justice and how to incorporate social responsibility in something as simple as a cup of coffee.
