How has Dickinson prepared you for your future?

The most significant way Dickinson prepared me for my work after graduation was certainly the year I lived abroad in Germany. It helped me learn to live and thrive in a foreign country on my own.

Internship Experience

My big internship experience has been at Diamond6 Leadership & Strategy, where I worked as a marketing and communications intern. In my role, I not only managed the company's social media accounts, but I also performed in-depth client research and met with business leads at regional mixers.

What are you most anticipating about your future?

I am really excited to be living abroad once again, especially in Berlin. It has always been a dream of mine to live in that city, and it is finally coming true.

What are some of the defining moments of your Dickinson experience?

An important defining moment to me at Dickinson was being selected to represent the college at a Mellon Foundation simulation at VMI. Not only did I have the opportunity to meet former ambassadors and high-ranking generals, but I was able to work together in a crisis simulation with students from a variety of military academies from around the nation to help improve the status of "CivMil" relations.
