Journalist Intern

May 2020 Malden, MA
“My position says journalist, but I was actually quite a few things and I enjoyed all of my positions. I have since helped in video/film production and taken complimentary classes to sharpen my reportage skills. I have been involved in the marketing team, attended events, lectures and gatherings. I even was part of the of the new logo design team as they are in the midst of a major transition. Overall I deeply enjoyed the nurturing and diverse environment. The people at MATV want to see students succeed and they care about everyone working under them.”
