4 Things That Excite Me About My Internship

In college there are things that we need to accomplish in order to graduate and to help us get a job. The grades and the things that we do on campus are very important but none maybe more important than internships. Internships are essentially training on the field for the jobs that we want to pursue after we graduate. They are great ways to gain experience in our respected fields but what could be more important than the experience we gain are the connections we may make with the people we work with. We all have heard it’s not about what you know, its about who you know. I am going to be interning this Fall at a sports radio station in Milwaukee known as 105.7 The Fan, I am very grateful for this opportunity and what I will learn. These are my four things I am looking most forward towards with my internship.

1. The connections to be made.

I know Milwaukee isn’t a city like New York or Chicago, but it still is a major market city for sports when it comes to coverage. Interning for a popular sports radio station to me means that the chances to make connections are almost endless. With covering teams like the Bucks, Brewers, and Packers I get excited for the things that I am going to see and the people that I am going to meet which. Hopefully sometime during this internship I meet my future employer or perhaps I have already met them.

2. The education I'll receive.

The point of a internship is to learn new things, while I have learned a lot about production in media for the last two years I am excited to finally be able to now work on what I have learned and test myself in the field. From communication, editing, and writing I am very excited to be expanding my craft in the world of sports reporting.

3. The people I may meet.

One thing about working in the sports world is you never know whom you are going to meet. I love to talk about sports, the thing I am excited for is the athletes I may meet and to see what their personalities are like. For all I know by Christmas time I could end up meeting Jabari Parker, Aaron Rodgers, maybe even John Cena.

4. The unknown.

What I am most excited for is not knowing what I am going to experience every day I walk into the station. I know I am going to make a few mistakes because that is inevitable, but I am going to do everything I can to avoid any mistakes so I can get the best experience I can to help me down the road when it comes time for me to finally start making a living for myself in my adult life.

Christmas traditions

The Holidays are a time for being with friends and family and celebrating the birth of Christ, but sometimes we forget to acknowledge the other religions and what they celebrate. Some religions like the Islam do not even celebrate Christmas and then you have others, the Buddhists, who use the holiday to practice their religion of spreading peace and goodwill. In no particular order, I would like to demonstrate a little culture about the ways Christmas is celebrated or is not celebrated throughout five different religions.
