Meet the New Interns at International HELP

May 21, 2020

International HELP is excited to welcome four new interns for the summer of 2020. This group of interns are all students at Liberty University and will be working in the areas of health care, dental education, marketing, and epidemiology. We are looking forward to working with these interns on creating planning materials for upcoming projects and advancing outward communications for International HELP.

Manouchka Fleurinord

Hello! My name is Manouchka Fleurinord and I am originally from Miami, FL but now live in Phoenix, AZ. I am currently in the Masters in Public Health program with a concentration in Health Promotion at Liberty University. I decided to study public health after doing some research on the health disparities in dentistry. Eventually, this research led me to researching public health factors that affect third world countries, such as water and sanitation. With my background in dentistry, I aspire to utilize my knowledge as a dentist to bring dental education and care to third world countries.

Kiah Francis

My name is Kiah Francis and I am a rising senior at Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA. I am majoring in Strategic Communication with a minor in Business and will begin an online M.B.A. program in the Fall of 2020. I initially majored in exercise science and have always taken an interest in public health and non-profit business models. I will be working with International HELP as a social media intern to gain experience developing content, communicating with marketing on projects, and learning skills that will help me in my future career.  I am looking forward to being a part of International HELP’s mission to empower communities through health care education.

Sarahi Quintanilla

I was born and raised in Honduras, but I moved to the US in 2009 to pursue a career in the health field. I have a degree in Biology Pre-med and I’m currently pursuing my MPH in Epidemiology at Liberty University. I have had a lot of volunteer experience in the health-care field since I was in high school. I have translated for medical doctors in medical brigades in my country. I have also volunteered at several Remote Area Medical Brigades in Tennessee and West Virginia. Currently I have been volunteering with International HELP as a translator and I also volunteer as an EMT with Campbell County Rescue Squad in Lynchburg, VA. I currently work as an Emergency Department Technician at Lynchburg General. I chose to intern with International HELP because I believe in their mission and I would like to give something back to my community, by applying the knowledge and skills I have acquired while pursuing my MPH.
