In the summer of 2014, while prepping my first semester as Editor-In-Chief at The Northerner, I took an internship at Northern Kentucky University’s online magazine Inside NKU.
The summer of 2014 was a busy summer, but in those three months I got to experience a different side of journalism. Here I was given the responsibility of writing for the university, it was more Public Relations based, but I was given the chance to write some interesting profiles and features on characters I had no idea were on the campus I went to nearly every day.
Inside NKU was a new experience. I got to meet some interesting people and develop professional relationships with the amazing people in the Marketing and Communications department and Northern Kentucky University. The job inspired ideas within me for the new semester at The Northerner and gave me a taste of a non-newsroom workplace. It was a new and exciting three months.
