We are excited to welcome our new interns this semester! Here’s a little more information about the ladies:



My name is Lexie Smith and I am a senior at UMSL. I’m graduating this December with a Bachelor’s degree in Communication. I joined the DSAGSL family because it aligns with a lot of my core values. Being able to undertake work that you know gives back to the community is something to be proud of everyday. I plan on taking the skills I learn here to hopefully keep working in non-profit organizations after I graduate.

Fun fact: When I’m not in school, my internship, or working at my aunt’s bridal boutique, I enjoy reading, going to the gym, and watching Netflix!



Hi, my name is Quinisha Jackson-Wright, and I am a senior at UMSL with a major in Communication. I graduate in May 2018 (so excited!). I chose to join DSAGSL because I enjoy doing work that has a purpose, and I love meeting people from all backgrounds. After graduating, I would like to continue working in social media and communications in the non-profit sector.



My name is Mallory Mason, I am a student enrolled at St. Louis Community College Meramec, and my major is Social Work. I decided to intern with DSAGSL because I currently nanny an 8 year old who has autism, and I want to work with individuals with disabilities as well as their families. Interning with DSAGSL will give me more knowledge and experience to support families, and individuals with Down syndrome.



My name is Zoë Wallis and I attend the University of Missouri-St. Louis. I am a senior, majoring in Communication with a minor in Gender Studies. I chose DSAGSL because I am passionate about social justice and equality. Every single person in this world has something to offer and I am here to help ensure everyone’s voices are heard!
