Describe the most meaningful experience you had as an intern. 

The most meaningful experience I had was going on a disaster relief run and seeing the impact of flooding. I saw how communicating effectively with the community is so important when it comes to emergencies. It made me realize that I was actually helping people!

What was the most challenging aspect of your internship?  

The most challenging part was trying to learn everything I could about the Red Cross. Also keeping up with social media and trying to come up with new content. 

How did you apply your Liberal Arts-skills to your internship position?

I applied a lot of my writing skills to this internship. I used many different types of writing (press releases, social media, and article writing).

How has your internship prepared you for your career?

My internship prepared me for a career by expanding my knowledge and skills that I can use in a future job.
