Majoring in English and French, I had anticipated perhaps interning for a publishing company in New York or finding a job in a writing or writing-related field in a city for this summer. I perused Hearst Publications, Condé Nast, and even Madison Square Garden for various opportunities. I wanted to work somewhere big–high profile, serious office. It turns out that I found myself in the complete opposite setting, yet content and proud of the job that I landed.
I am a research assistant for Voices of September 11th, a non-profit located in New Canaan, Connecticut.
