About Bonnie Kester
Bonnie Kester grew up in a small town on the south shore of Long Island, New York. She is going into her senior year of college at SUNY Purchase, where she is double-majoring in Psychology and Gender Studies. After graduating in 2018, she hopes to go into a counseling psychotherapy graduate program. Bonnie loves to travel; she has travelled to many countries, most of them in Europe and the Caribbean, and hopes to travel more in the future. Her interests include riding her bike, drawing, painting, and relaxing at the beach. Through the Get Smart Internship, she hopes to utilize her strong sense of empathy to connect with other empowered women and reach out to those who are struggling with the tasks of young adulthood and hopefully make a difference in any way she can. Through this internship, she hopes to be able to hone these skills in her future career as a counseling psychotherapist.
