Tyson Foods Intern: Juan David Sanchez Vallejo

July 10, 2019, in Latest News, Profiles

Meet Juan David Sanchez Vallejo! Juan is a senior general psychology & business administration double major from Bogota, Colombia. He enjoys hanging with friends, going to the movies, playing sports, and watching beautiful Iowa sunsets. Juan is also a Tyson Foods Summer Community Intern with the Juvenile Court Services.

At the Juvenile Court Services, Juan works with immigrant families to help build effective strategies and create connections. Juan noted that his work is only a small part of the whole process, but that it helps to improve the community by providing families with better opportunities. 

Juan chose Morningside because of the scholarships, soccer team, and rigorous academics. Juan’s favorite Morningside memory has been being able to get know Morningside’s international students and being a part of the Morningside Soccer Team.  After graduation, Juan hopes to extend his stay in the U.S. and work in a psychology or business related job.

Thank you to Tyson Foods, Iowa Campus Compact, and Juvenile Court Services for making this experience possible for Juan and all the Tyson Foods Summer Community interns.
