I am a newspaper and online journalism senior at the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications, Syracuse University.
Last spring, I took part in a program called Newhouse in NYC, where I interned for DoctorOz.com. Throughout my college career, I have written for several campus publications and currently work as the lifestyle section director for Equal Time Magazine, a student-run magazine. I am also a writing intern for the Odyssey, a social content platform.
After graduation, I hope to secure a job as a reporter in the news industry.

My First Job Was Important To Me Because…
My first job, although not glamorous, taught me a few very important skills. Such lessons included interpersonal skills, personal responsibility and how to save what little money I was making. I worked at a small smoothie bar that saw between 15 and 20 customers throughout the course of the day.
Needless to say, there was much downtime during an eight-hour shift. It was during this time I learned my most important lesson: There is always something to be done. It was easy to sit and linger behind the counter between each customer and collect my pay at the end of each shift. I quickly learned my boss didn’t appreciate this quite as much as I did. I began to find things to do throughout my shift. I washed dishes, I swept the floors and I reorganized anything I could get my hands on.
This is a skill that has translated to other parts of my life, including subsequent jobs and my day-to-day activities. I have my first job to thank for a skill that has benefited me and will continue to benefit me throughout my life and future career.
