Meet Our New Interns

On the 14th of June the SIHMA team bid our remote intern, Christine, farewell as her internship had come to an end. Christine had been managing our social media posts since March, and she will be greatly missed. Luckily for us, we had two new interns join us in office on the 31st May, to make the transition easier. Brilliant and Nathan have been with us for just under a month now, and have both acclimatized well. Although Brilliant has now moved to a remote internship, her presence is still felt throughout the office. Meet our new interns below:
