Welcome, Sam!

We have another fabulous fall intern to introduce!

Sam will be a wonderful addition to our fundraising intern team and will be working with Lizzie.

Read on to learn a bit about him!

“Hi! My name is Sam Eliasen, and I’m a new fundraising intern at Gigi’s. This year, I’m a freshman at the University of Iowa studying neuroscience on the pre-med track. I’m also editor-in-chief of InkLit Magazine, UI’s freshman literary journal. When I’m not at GiGi’s, in class, or at my job as a K12 math instructor, I love swimming, hiking, and reading. I’m excited to be at GiGi’s this year because I love getting to know people and forming connections. I can’t wait to meet you all!”
