Major: English

Employer: Women's Center of Eastern Connecticut State University

Internship Title: Ambassador/Intern

Though an internship does not need to be completed for Stephanie's major in English, it is mandated by her minor in Women's Studies. Stephanie's duties as an intern include her having to be present for 9 office hours weekly. During this time she works on different Women's Center programs that she is charged with throughout the semester, or helps other ambassadors with their respective programs. Stephanie also answers phone calls and completes other tasks as needed by the center. She describes the Women's Center as a welcoming place to which visitors feel comfortable going.

Stephanie is not positive exactly what she wants to do after graduating, but she is sure that she wants to be an advocate for Women's Rights. Possible options for Stephanie are attending Law School or getting her masters degree in Social Work, either of which would be accomplished while focusing on issues relating to women.

Stephanie's advice for other students seeking internships in the future is to always think ahead. She says not to wait until the last minute to get involved. Because she found her internship through a staff member, Stephanie says to not hesitate talking to professors, as they often have connections to possible internships. Further she says that by connecting with a professor in a preferred field, students can easily become involved with what they really want to do.
