- Columbia University, Class of 2015
- Major / Minor: American Studies / English and Comparative Literature
The best class that I’ve taken at Columbia University so far was Mass Media and American Democracy, because it critically analyzed the relationship between all branches of the American government and media professionals. In class we were constantly asked to consider the question, “What makes a story newsworthy?” In attempting to answer this question, I became more interested in learning about public relations.
My favorite website would have to be Buzzfeed.com. It is a quintessential millennial website in that it features news stories, tons of lists and it also encourages users to interact with the content and each other.
I’m interning at CooperKatz because I wanted the opportunity to work in an environment where I am encouraged to be creative and ask questions. Since starting my internship, I’ve enjoyed learning more about public relations, brainstorming and how to set—and reach—goals.
