BikeTexas is proud to introduce our fall intern, Raheleh “Haley” Kordrostami.
Haley is an accounting student at Austin Community College and started interning with us in September. In the short time she’s been with us, Haley has proven to be an invaluable asset, working hard at everything we’ve asked her to do, from hauling bikes to data entry. Haley also proved her uber-volunteer status at the Austin BikeFest, when she and her husband Payam worked hard alongside BikeTexas staff from start to finish to make it a great day.
“I’m learning all about bicycles and bike advocacy,” Haley says. “It’s been good for me to start riding a bike again, because I had a bike when I was 9 or 10 but haven’t ridden my own bike in a while. I really enjoy it.”
Sadly, Haley is only with us until the end of December, and she’s hoping to find an internship a bit closer to her major for the spring. We’ve been delighted to have her in the office this fall and wish her well as she goes on– but until then, we’ll make sure that she has lots of chances to explore Austin by bike.
