Hello & welcome back!! This week I am so excited to share with you all about some of the internships our sisters have received for this upcoming summer. From New York City to Seattle, our Beta Eta’s have set the bar high with these incredible, life-changing opportunities they have awaiting them across the nation.
Katie Sluman will be interning in the Communications department of the MLB in NYC, with her main focus being the All-Star Game, prompting her to do projects for this event throughout the whole summer. Katie is a Finance major minoring in Hospitality here at Florida State. Her main interest falls in the sports department, which inspired her to apply for this prestigious internship. Congratulations, Katie!!
Another one of our sisters, Emily Malfitano, will also be interning in New York City starting this summer. Emily has accepted a merchandising internship with the Hudson Bay Company’s Saks 5th/Off 5th Ave. This position will teach Emily about the buying and planning that goes on within a fashion brand, with buying consisting of employees marketing and negotiating on merchandise for their store based on what customers are already buying and upcoming trends, along with planning consisting of the pricing for these items. Emily was inspired to apply to this internship after going on a marketing trip with Florida State, giving her the opportunity to speak with employees who work for Saks. This internship not only consists of amazing work, but provides interns with housing at the NYU dorms, providing an affordable alternative to living in the big apple. Emily has said that she has always loved this company, influencing her to apply for her “dream job”. We are so excited to watch you succeed as your dream becomes a reality, Emily!
Ashley Thomas will be heading over to the University of Washington in Seattle to intern at their Autism Center for the Apex Summer Camp! This camp works to help children with both Autism and ADHD on their social and communication skills. Ashley is currently majoring in Communication Science Disorders in order to fulfill her dream of becoming a speech pathologist, specializing in Autism. This position will not only give Ashley experience in her field, but will give her the opportunity to make a difference in the lives of these children. We can’t wait to see what you do, Ashley!
Mallory Wilvert will be interning at The Club at Cordillera in Edwards, Colorado alongside the events coordinator, working to plan and host events at the country club. These events will include golf tournaments at the three different courses located at the club, along with large brunches and gatherings for both members and guests. When Mallory is not helping plan events, she’ll be working as both a server and bartender at the many restaurants found within the club. Mallory is currently majoring in global club management, leading her to pursue this incredible position at The Club. Make sure to send invites to brunch our way, Mallory!!
Finally, our VP of Philanthropy, Jessi Bonadurer, will be continuing her internship at Katten Muchin Rosenman LLP, a law firm in Chicago, which she has been asked back to for the past two summers. Just this past summer she was promoted to Supervisor, causing her to oversee the work of all the other interns. Jessi hopes to one day become either a litigator or to do advocacy work for both women and individuals with intellectual disabilities, and this experience will definitely help her get there! We are so proud of all the amazing opportunities our sisters are taking advantage of this summer and can’t wait to see the other internships more sisters acquire in the upcoming months!
