WHAT SHE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “Experiencing the life of a journalist in my favorite city, New York! I am also very excited to combine my passion for writing with the economic background I have acquired in the classroom at Holy Cross.”

WHY SHE’S BLOGGING “I loved reading the student blogs from the Summer Internship Program last year and found them extremely helpful. Hearing about everything from the intern’s professional lives to the discovery of new restaurants in their free time immediately convinced me that I wanted to be a part of the program. I’m very excited to have the chance to tell others about my summer experience and show what a Holy Cross education can do to prepare you for the real world.”

CAREER GOAL To work in business communications or media.

ABOUT SIP Internships through the College’s Summer Internship Program are developed through the strong network of Holy Cross alumni, parents, and friends throughout the country and are earmarked and designed specifically for Holy Cross students.
