Third Lens Ministries would like to introduce our interns. These interns work in all aspects of Third Lens, broken down into three divisions: operations, construction and design, and marketing. These divisions are split into teams. The operations division is made up of the outreach and management teams. The construction and design division has the design team, project team and research team. Our marketing division includes the impact and creative teams.
Below are some of our interns, with more to be introduced in upcoming posts.

Social Media Intern
My name is Nicolette PicKell, and I am a rising senior at Baylor University studying marketing and entrepreneurship. I grew up in Southern California, but my family moved to Atlanta, Georgia after my highschool graduation. A few of my favorite things include spending time with my family and friends, a good Netflix binge, and anything that allows me to be creative! I am so excited to be a part of the Third Lens team for this upcoming summer!
Jill is a rising junior at Auburn University studying marketing and economics. Having had previous experience doing public relations and advertising with her mom’s company growing up, she is excited to move into the nonprofit sector. In particular, Third Lens’s project in Haiti resonated with her, in having volunteered with special needs children in the past, and having family members with similar circumstances. She is extremely excited to be a part of an organization such as Third Lens, which has touched so many hearts around the world. In her free time, you might find her on the golf course, cooking a new recipe, or on the lake with friends.
Third Lens looks forward to seeing what outstanding work this team of interns will do throughout their time with the organization.
