Beacon is excited to welcome Askhari Corr to our office this summer! Askhari is a member of the Rainier Scholars program and will serve as an intern here through August. He will assist us on various project and marketing tasks. Askhari’s prior experience includes serving as a Real Estate Development Intern last summer at the Polygon Northwest Company, located in Bellevue, WA. He is currently attending American University in Washington D.C. and is on track to receive a B.A. in Justice, Law and Society in 2015. Askhari plans to pursue a career in real estate development. In particular, he is interested in the city development of Detroit, Michigan, and plans to contribute to rebuilding the city’s economy and industrial sector through the reconstruction of neighborhoods.
When we interviewed Askhari and heard that he was interested in a career in urban planning and real estate development, we knew he would be a great fit for our office! Beacon is proud to partner with Rainier Scholars to offer this summer internship and to help grow the skills and capacity of Seattle youth to address the pressing issues faced by cities around the country. Welcome Askhari!
