Bingran Zeng is a rising sophomore at Vanderbilt University, in the Peabody College of Education and Human Development, where she studies Education and Human and Organizational Development. The Children’s Defense Fund was her top choice when applying for an internship because it is a very well-rounded organization that provides insight into the operation of a nonprofit organization from multiple perspectives. While interning in the Development Department, Bingran has learned about the wide range of methods to fundraise for CDF’s programs. Bingran looks forward to exploring different aspects of a nonprofit organization in the future, such as program coordination and policy research, so she can continue to serve children around the world. Bingran hopes to work for international education nonprofits in the future.
