I’m so glad and lucky to be interning with PR and marketing at the School of Communications for this semester! I feel like I will be doing a lot of what I love and gain great experience for the workforce. As I think about this awesome opportunity, it brings me back to what got me here. When I was a freshman, I was an Exploratory major for a semester, then an English major, and finally switched to Applied Communication with minors in Marketing and Media Literacy. Even though I was slightly weary about this major at first, I am now confident that I definitely chose the right major. I love all of the opportunities that are open for me, such as this internship and the Marketing and Communications internship that I had at YWCA Greater Cleveland over the summer. I have found out that I love social media marketing, designing, and writing articles and blogs. I would not be here if it weren’t for the advice and encouragement from my family, friends, professors, and role models. They helped me figure out what it was that I loved to do, when I didn’t think I would ever know.
But as I think about this internship and the fact that I only have two semesters of undergrad left, I really can’t believe it! Michael Altshuler, author of PCR Troubleshooting: The Essential Guide, once said, “The bad news is time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.” Where does time go? It seems to just fly by no matter what you’re doing. Wait, I’m a senior in college? What? I feel like I was just moving into my dorm in Eastway as a freshman a few weeks ago! Now I’m getting ready to graduate college and move on to -gasp- the real world! But I am considering grad school for now, so I guess we will just have to see where life takes me! I think that this internship will help me to find out what I really love to do and help me to develop skills that I will use for the rest of my life.
Thanks for reading,
