One of my new positions on campus this year is interning with the Communications department. I had previously worked with the department as a Banter Blogger, but through this new role I’ve been able to interact as a regular team member. It’s been great getting to know my supervisors better and I even get my own office – which I lovingly refer to as my secondary carrel. I’ve contributed to social media and publicity operations through my previous internships off-campus, but it’s exciting to help share Bryn Mawr, a place I cherish, with the world.
One of my first projects was to interview my friend Angela for Bryn Mawr’s website. Angela received Dean’s funding to spend this past summer volunteering for a public health non-profit in Ghana. We met up for an Indian dinner in Erdman to discuss her travels and experiences. Angela and I were in the same Customs group, meaning we lived on the same hall freshman year, and have continued to live in the same dorm together for all four years. In addition to her great sense of humor and endless capacity for fun, she’s an amazing scholar, friend, and advocate. I’m so lucky to have been able to know her during my time at Bryn Mawr. I can’t wait to see what she does next! You can read my article about Angela here.
