Internship at WORX

“While at WORX, I brainstormed and created several social content calendars for several different clients. Some content calendars included just Instagram, while others were both Facebook and Instagram. I learned that creating content calendars is something that I really enjoy and have fun with. I get the chance to use my writing skills and be creative by writing fun or strategic captions and posts.”

Internship at Fox Sports Radio

“The entire experience was something that I never thought that I would be able to do this early in my career, especially in radio. I came in with no radio experience whatsoever, and I walked out feeling like a full-time worker for Fox Sports Radio because once I said my farewells to the staff, they all had one more thing to say to me, which was that I am now a part of the family, which I will cherish for the rest of my life.”
