Husky Stories: Sydney Janeway talks about discovering nonprofit work

Undergraduate Academic Affairs

Each and every Husky goes through their own journey, undergoes their own unique experiences and, most importantly, has their very own story to share. Husky Stories is a mini-series in which Huskies share their successes, failures, experiences — their stories. There is no one way to be a Husky. Indeed, the culmination of individuals’ stories shape the picture of what it means to be a Husky.

Welcome to the second episode of Husky Stories! Sydney Janeway graduated in 2020 with a degree in international relations. While at UW, Sydney is participated in the Undergraduate Community Based Internship program, a paid internship program that places students at nonprofits and public sector organizations. Here, she shares stories of how the UCBI program introduced her to the word of nonprofits and helped her figure out her career path. (Note: This interview took place prior to the coronavirus pandemic.)

Undergraduate Academic Affairs programs offer many opportunities to get involved with the community. Staff throughout UAA are available to help you navigate opportunities for learning beyond the classroom. Learn more about the UCBI program and additional opportunities working with students in preschool through high school and developing your leadership skills.
