Meet the 40th Ward Summer 2023 Interns!

Naima, a 2023 summer intern at the 40th Ward Office

Hello everyone! My name is Naima. I recently graduated from Northside College Prep, where I worked with a few different student-led groups dedicated to diversity and equity. I’ve been with the 40th Ward for a few months as a volunteer, and I’m really excited to transition to being here full-time this summer and getting to meet more people around the Ward.
