AIP Intern Spotlight: Nana Sissoko
AEF and Destination DC welcome Nana Sissoko, from Jackson-Reed [Wilson] High School’s Academy of Hospitality and Tourism to the team this spring through the Career and Technical Advanced Internship Program (AIP). She is working with the Partnerships & Alliances team on data analysis and management.
“The hospitality industry interests me because of its broad nature. It can be found in many sectors of work, which allows for endless career opportunities. I am extremely excited to gain experience and insights into the industry with the help of AEF and Destination DC.” – Nana Sissoko
The AIP program is part of a larger mayoral workforce development investment that places eligible high school seniors into paid and credit-bearing internship opportunities in fields they hope to pursue.
