My most recent internship was with an international agency in London, where I studied abroad, and learned the ins and outs of global corporate communications. While taking classes this fall, I realized an interest of mine is the tech industry, which is a main reason for my choice of BIGfish for a spring internship. I look forward to diving deeper into the tech industry through various clients during this internship. I am very excited to be a part of the BIGfish team this semester and cannot wait to get started!
