Au revoir à notre stagiaire Kate !

Merci Kate !

The Alliance Française Mpls/St Paul is sad to say au revoir to our youth programs, or Djeunes, intern Kate Redetzke. We have been fortunate to have such a talented intern on our team. Kate is a junior at the University of Minnesota with a double major in linguistics and French, and a minor in Arabic.

Since June, she has helped coordinate our club for Francophone teens, Les Djeunes. She also contributed to our social media and many of our events. We’ll especially never forget her help with AFMSP’s first ever Fall Fashion Show Fundraiser!

Now she’s off to Montpellier for a semester of immersion dans le monde francophone. We will miss her, but are très reconnaissant for all of her hard work here!

Now, a few words from Kate:

“For the past six months, I’ve had the amazing opportunity to work at AFMSP as the Djeunes Intern. As Djeunes Intern, I was responsible for organizing activities for our teen club and helping promote Alliance events. I worked with our Education Intern, Anne-Sophie, and our Cultural Events Coordinator, Sara, to put together fun monthly events for the teen club. These activities, such as our murder mystery party in November and our craft workshop in December, were some of my favorite times at Alliance.

I’ve learned so much working in this position, and my French skills have greatly improved. I started studying French about five years ago. I always knew that I wanted to find a way to use the language in my daily life. But I wasn’t really sure how I was going to do that as long as I was living in Minneapolis. Then, I found l’Alliance. Working here gave me a chance to connect with the Francophone community in Minnesota and expand my own knowledge of the French language. I’ve loved every minute of this internship, and I’m incredibly grateful to Alliance for giving me this opportunity. As my internship comes to a close, I’d like to say a big merci to everyone at Alliance for making this internship such a wonderful experience!”


Bonne continuation Kate ! You are always welcome at the Alliance Française.
