It's National Intern Day! To celebrate, we're introducing two more of the talented young professionals who'll be supporting Source One this summer.
Hi everyone! My name is Ignacio Saps and I am a rising sophomore at the University of Michigan - Ann Arbor, majoring in Economics. I was born in New York but was raised in Highland Park, IL. I am an avid soccer fan and when I am not working or studying, you can find me watching or playing soccer. I come from a strictly-Spanish speaking household and also speak Hebrew.
At school, I am involved in multiple business-related clubs, such as Apex Trading Group, Michigan Real Estate Club, Ross in Argentina, and Crypto currency Investments Club. I also spend my free time researching various topics in the business world that interest me; for example, the stock market.
Prior to joining Source One, I interned at Via Confort, a large furniture and appliance chain located in Montevideo, Uruguay. During my time at Via Confort, I worked in the sales and accounting departments and learned about the many components that go into operating a large business.
I am very excited about joining the Source One team. The staff here is so welcoming and helpful. I look forward to working on my first project and gaining experience and knowledge within the field of Consulting.
Hey, my name is Siara Singleton! I'm from NYC, but I've lived in the Lehigh Valley most my life where I fell in love with ballet and fitness. This past Spring, I graduated from East Stroudsburg University (ESU) where I majored in business management and minored in psychology. At ESU, I participated in Colleges Against Cancer, tutored my peers, and had a short stint as a campus tour guide. I spent most of my time performing on the ESU Dance Team, however, where I was a team choreographer. Some of my favorite things to do outside of dance and work is going to the gym, cooking, reading, and photographing people/animals. I also participate in a program called Big Brother Big Sisters of America where I serve as a mentor for a wonderful little girl named Jeleila.
Before I came to Source One, I worked as a clerical support specialist for Coordinated Health Hospital during the school year. Last summer, I worked with an incredible nonprofit called Arts Quest where I was a development intern and had the chance to work with the Executive Director and her communications team. We hosted events, acquired new members, and raised money for varying funds including one to host free art classes for children in the surrounding Bethlehem area.
I'm the marketing intern here at Source One and I have the opportunity to advance my skills by promoting Source One's unique services. As someone who is concerned with the environment and other social issues, I have always wanted to lead an ethical career path. I hope to use my business marketing skills to promote sustainable companies with green supply chains no matter what industry they're in. I was drawn to Source One because of their ability to offer both cost-saving and eco-friendly solutions through strategic sourcing. I believe procurement professionals with ecological awareness will produce the healthiest, most efficient, and responsible companies in the future.
