"The major highlight [of the internship] for me came from working with Amherst Media to launch their community-centric website, The Collective. … They let me contribute film reviews and episodes of my podcast, The Pick-Ups. Together, we craft and curate content for a growing audience that encourages writers, filmmakers, and other artists to engage with their community while promoting their work."

"In the fall of 2010 I was lucky enough to serve as Linda Aronson’s intern, working with her on a project which strives to change the way we look at education. I spent a lot of time looking into alternative educational teaching techniques and curriculums, editing Linda Aronson’s manuscript … and thinking about my own education."

"There’s so much that I had the opportunity to experience this summer [as an intern] – the groggy-eyed morning commute into the city, the rhythm of working in an office, the opportunity to meet people … I’m more satisfied with the experience as a whole than I am with any particular insight or skill I gleaned."
