WKAR Communications Website Writer and Editor

September 2021 - August 2022 East Lansing, MI
“I really enjoyed the larger sense of meaning that went into everything I helped write and create. WKAR does such amazing work within the mid-Michigan community and it was rewarding to be a part of that, even in small ways. I also appreciated the responsibility that I was given from the very beginning. I liked being able to learn new tasks and contribute to large projects despite just being an intern.”

“I like the many opportunities at WKAR. Even though I am the All Things Considered Intern, I voice the weather for Weekend Edition, I have operated the sound board for Current Sports, I have accompanied journalists on stories, and I upload stories to the WKAR website.”
