Tonight, I’ll hop on a plane and head for New York City. It’s the same flight I took a year ago en route to my internship in the corporate communications department at Rodale, but this year I’m heading to the Big Apple to work in the communications department at Sports Illustrated.
After an amazing year at the University of Oregon (how did it go by so quickly?), I’m stoked to begin this next adventure and have the chance to combine my passions for PR and sports while learning more about how PR is done in the real world. With one summer in New York under my belt, I feel more confident about living in the city (yeah, I can hail a cab all by myself) but know I still have a lot to learn.
I’ll be blogging here about my experiences, from the fun to the embarrassing to the Liz Lemon-esque. If you feel so inclined, please feel free to follow along and read/comment if you’d like. (Also, if you feel so inclined, please send money. Kidding. Sort of.)
Thanks for reading my blog and – if you’re in Oregon – I’ll see you in August!
