16th Sep 2018 | by the Department of PR & Marketing

AUK welcomed two new interns from Dartmouth College, Hannah Lang and Allyson (Ally) Gaines. They are both members of the Dartmouth class of 2021 and arrived in Kuwait from Morocco where they spent the summer studying Arabic.

Hannah Lang is from the small town of Grantham, New Hampshire. She is interested in Middle Eastern Studies and is pursuing a minor in Arabic. Hannah is considering a major in Quantitative Social Science with a concentration in Geography. At Dartmouth, she is involved in the Triathlon Team, Students Fighting Hunger, and healthcare policy research.

At AUK, Hannah will be working in the Department of Public Relations and Marketing, at the Tutoring Center, and in the Intensive English Program. During the ten-week internship, Hannah is looking forward to developing her writing and teaching skills, learning about Kuwait, and making new friends. So far, she has been impressed by the vast number of malls in Kuwait and has been volunteering at ReFood in Andalous.

Ally Gaines is from the suburbs of Atlanta, Georgia. At Dartmouth, she is pursuing interests and studies in the Middle East and Government. In the past, Ally has served on student government and has competed in national conferences for Future Business Leaders of America. She is involved on Dartmouth’s campus as a member of various groups including Student Assembly, Dartmouth Political Times newspaper, and the Dartmouth College cheerleading team.

Ally will be working in the Office of Student Life, the Center for Continuing Education, and as a Writing Tutor at AUK. She is excited to get to know students, faculty, and staff. She also hopes to join a club and to participate in school events. Ally has had “nothing but good experiences” during her first week and is very happy to be at AUK.

Hannah and Ally will be at AUK until mid-November. This is the 24th time since 2005 that interns join AUK from Dartmouth College.
