Hello to all and happy summer (finally)! I am writing to you to introduce myself and give you a little background on who I am and what I will be doing this summer.
My name is Katie Leonard and I am a rising senior at Holy Cross. I am an Economics major with a minor in Art History, and in my free time I serve as the Co-Director of Student Athletics for the Student Government Association, a tutor, and, as of next year, a Senior Interviewer for the Admissions department.
Okay, enough about my life up on the hill, let’s get to the real reason you are reading this post: what I will be doing this summer!
This past fall I was admitted to the Summer Internship Program, and, after all of their tireless help and support, I was lucky enough to secure an Editorial Internship at Source Media. I will be reporting and writing on financial trends for their Capital Markets Newsletters Division, in addition to helping with copyediting and layout. I will be working in Manhattan and primarily commuting from my home in southern Connecticut, about 50 minutes from the city.
I can’t wait to put my HC liberal arts background into practice as well as to further my understanding of the financial and publishing industries. Of course, I also can’t wait for everything else summer in New York City has to offer along the way! I will check back in next week after my first few days.
I am so excited to take you all on this journey with me, Bon voyage!
