Hailey Bazlen, '15 (Silicon Valley Council of Nonprofits)

Major/Minor(s): Marketing
Hometown: Woodinville, WA
Interest/Hobbies: I love horseback riding, skiing, hiking, and camping.

How I got involved and what I am learning/ hope to learn:
Right after I first heard of the NPI Fellowship opportunity, I knew that I wanted to be a part of the program. Through NPI, I am currently a Social Media Marketing and Communications Intern at Silicon Valley Council of Nonprofits (SVCN). Specifically within SVCN, I work with HandsOn Tech Silicon Valley, which is a program that provides technology consultation to nonprofits. This helps the nonprofits become more efficient in their technology use, so that they can spend more time working towards their cause! I am already learning so many useful skills in marketing such as how to manage and optimize social media, using Google AdWords and Analytics to create and analyze ads, creating my own tech byte presentation on social media use to present to nonprofits during consultations, and website management. Since HandsOn Tech is within SVCN, I am being immersed into a team culture where everyone collaborates together, so I am learning a variety of skills outside of marketing as well, that will provide me with useful skills for my future career. I will be working on a large variety of projects, but one that I am especially excited for is being responsible to develop and implement a social media marketing plan for HandsOn Tech.

The NPI program has provided me with the ability to put my skills to work for a good cause and help out the local community, while mutually benefiting from the internship by gaining invaluable experience. NPI is an amazing program and I am honored to be a part of it. I look forward to the rest of my junior year involved in the NPI.
