New Intern Queen Campus Ambassador from Stony Brook University!

Meet our New Ambassador, Ariam!

Journalists are ordinary people who hold powerful information to society. For years I have worked to channel my energy into writing for the better of the community and as a journalism student at Stony Brook University, I’ve been explored to a world of phone antics, pressing deadlines, and rigorous red marks known as the “copy-editing” guidebook. As an aspiring journalist, it is essential to obtain internships to strengthen networking skills and build connections with different publications and companies. So far I have interned at two virtual internships; the first is Bleacher Report, which is one of the nation’s leading online sports publication and emcBlue.com, which is a social media community blog dedicated to music and fashion. As a remote intern, I had the advantage of using social media to promote the companies branding and communicated with editors and fellow interns via e-mail. Other extracurricular activities include blogging for Double Dutch magazine, which is an up-and-coming magazine geared towards empowering young women and being a guide to learn about New York City programs. I am also a student member of New York Women in Communications. This is my first summer as a member, so I am hopeful in becoming more active and participating in some of the programs this summer.

I am a rising junior at Stony Brook University and am expected to graduate in May 2013. I am working towards a BA in Journalism and a minor in political science.
