Blog: Fontelo ’13 Interns at U.S. Embassy in Manila, Philippines

July 17th, 2012 by Nikolas Markantonatos


NAME Paul Fontelo ’13

HOMETOWN Potomac, Md.

AREAS OF STUDY History and music double major

WHERE HE’S INTERNING The U.S. Embassy in Manila, Cultural Affairs section under the umbrella of Public Affairs. He assists the embassy on cultural matters.

INTERNSHIP DURATION June 11 – Aug. 17

WHAT HE’S MOST LOOKING FORWARD TO “Working in a different country and all of the challenges and excitement it brings. Although it is odd to consider the Philippines a different culture given my own Philippine heritage, it is nevertheless different from American culture. This is a new experience, working a regular job and adjusting to a different environment and routine.”

WHY HE’S BLOGGING “The Holy Cross blogs offer incredible insight for both the writer and reader. This is also my first time in the Philippines, so I wanted to keep an ongoing journal on what has thus far been an inspiring journey toward self-discernment. This blog is also a way to give back to the wonderful Holy Cross community that has helped me get here.”

CAREER GOAL “I’m interested in a career in music with the intention of promoting new music that a wide audience can enjoy. I’ve been lucky to have fantastic professors at Holy Cross who taught me the value of making music an intellectual, emotional, and spiritual experience.”

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. This year 150 students have internships at 146 sites offered through the program.
