I haven’t stopped learning from VBSchools. When I was a student I learned things that would help me get to college. Now, through my internship here, I’ve learned things that will help me get a job in the real world. I may not even go into public relations at all, but, with what I know now, it will help me with life.
I like producing things. Seeing my words in public on something or a graphic I created is just such a cool feeling. It’s a tangible thing. I can say, “I did this.” I want to be a writer, like a science writer, working with scientists as a technical writer to produce something for the public. I have a science background, so I want to use it. It’s unique because I’m good at writing but I also get science. I like science a lot. I majored in it my first two years in college. I was a chemistry major. I just didn’t like it enough to want to keep doing it. So, me knowing chemistry and knowing how to write, it’s hard to find people like that, I think.
What I really, really enjoy is copy editing, but there are not too many places you can just do copy editing. Also, if you copy edited all day you would drive yourself nuts.
