Please welcome our newest intern, Josie Camarillo.
Camarillo is a senior at Whitworth University seeking degrees both in English and psychology. She's a passionate writer and photographer and will be working as our very first copy editing intern.
Spokane Faith & Values has approximately 45 community writers contributing to the site, so we're very excited to have an extra set of eyes helping us out.
She's the third student currently interning for us.
Learn more about Camarillo on her author's page.
