CEO, Intern Queen + Career Queen, Entrepreneur
Los Angeles, California
I had 15 internships in college – these inspired me to help other students connect with real-world experiences.
Senior year of college…..wait…I can do this myself? Full time?
Yes, you want to be passionate but unless you have a huge trust fund (which I did not) you also need to be realistic and have a plan. How will you make money and how will you keep the lights on?
I jump up and down and sing and dance about the power of internships and career-related opportunities!
I’m grateful for my own resilience. Some days are great. Some days aren’t so great. But if you can learn to let go of the bad and embrace the good – you’ll be okay!
Bonus: Vacation makes me a better leader. Not being afraid (or ashamed) to take time off is key.
You miss 100% of the chances you don’t take.
I have to remind myself daily that the best thing I can do is ask and the worst thing they can do is say no.
Today it’s Arielle Charnas .. I want to know how she gets it all done.
Nothing, but I’ve had the Michelle Obama book next to my bed for months
Hopefully gone – let’s do something else – ha!
Dr. Brown’s diet cream soda or a dirty martini – extra dirty
Probably a bachelor fan account – ha!
Today it’s the Microsoft surface laptop (not sponsored) and my iPhone
Take a walk, take a nap, watch TV
I admire women who get rejected and force their way back on top
10 years of Intern Queen! Party time!
