Hi, my name is Godis Jackson and I’m excited to share what I do as an SF Fed intern.

When I need to take a break and stretch my legs, I go on a quick walk around the Embarcadero neighborhood with my mentor, Kathy, a project manager with Financial Institution Supervision and Credit.
GOLD internship escape room exercise
The Bank is big on teaching us the value of teamwork and collaboration. There’s no better way to do that than by having us break out of an Escape Room!

Luckily, my desk is on the 12th floor, so whenever I need a change of scenery, I can find a spot with an incredible view.

Thanks for sharing your day, Godis! Have a great year back at Pomona College.
