Testimonial: “This internship really gave me insight into what I am passionate about, and now I have the skills to further both my writing and media career! While I am a journalism major and interested in getting published in lifestyle publications, this internship required a lot of PR skills and helped me realize I want to explore that path as well. The best part about this internship was gaining insider knowledge and connections in the media world. Alyssa has been amazing to work with and is an incredibly successful woman that I look up to, I am incredibly lucky to have worked under her mentorship, learning not only career skills but life skills that have made me realized my potential and inspired me to work harder than ever before. This has been the perfect communications internship to help me launch my career and has prepared me for a future that is hopefully as successful and exciting as Alyssa’s!”
