Great Shape! Inc. welcomed its third and newest summer intern, Danika Heatherly today. Danika is a senior at Whitworth University in Spokane, WA. She’s double majoring in Journalism-Mass Communications and Marketing. She grew up in Visalia, CA – a “small” farm town of 120,000 people. Danika is the Sports Editor at the Whitworthian (Whitworth’s college newspaper) and will be the Senior Class President next year.
Danika already has her own love affair with Jamaica. This last spring break, Danika traveled to Jamaica on a service trip with a group of Whitworth students. They volunteered at the Eden Christian School for the Deaf which is North of Montego Bay. Danika says she enjoyed participating in service at Whitworth and then taking it to another country. “Powerful bonds happened incredibly fast between the students, children, and the Jamaicans.” Great Shape! Inc. is excited to utilize Danika’s drive, her passion to see new parts of the world, and her excellent writing skills this summer.
