WHY SHE’S BLOGGING “Reading past Summer Internship Program blogs inspired me to apply to an internship in New York City and assured me of the quality educational experience provided by SIP sites. I’d love to share my experiences with other students, and I am looking forward to writing about both my internship at Tuesday’s Children and the Big Apple I have all summer to explore!”
