EvolvEd has launched our beta website, and we are excited to introduce our interns who are working hard to get the word out! The team is working from their homes in different locations in the U.S. and Canada. They are currently studying a variety of subjects at Vassar College, a liberal arts college in Poughkeepsie, NY, with each one bringing something unique to our company.
The interns are working on marketing efforts to produce content for our blog and social media accounts, to form partnerships with different organizations, and to offer courses on EvolvEd themselves. They recognize the challenges of being in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic but are staying connected to collaborate on a variety of projects and optimize the user experience on EvolvEd!

Elisa is a Canadian rising junior double-majoring in English and Cognitive Science with an interest in French. She is an active member of two dance orgs at Vassar, in which she has exercised her creativity by choreographing her own dances. Her previous experiences as a writing intern allowed her to learn about the various ways in which language informs, empowers, and connects individuals. To her, EvolvEd is a platform that utilizes language in all three of these ways to bring students and experts from all walks of life together. She has also taught basic French to elementary school students at a local Poughkeepsie school and learned how to make lesson plans that are not just informative, but also fun for both the students and the teacher.
