Internship Reflections

last intern 001

Well my internship at Hawaii News Now is over. Sad. I had so much fun with it and really learned a lot. That was definitely the best way to spend my fall semester. Plus being in Hawaii the whole time didn’t hurt. Although, I’m still not sure that broadcast is what I want to go into. There are a lot of elements of it that I really enjoy, but my main career goal is to be a mom and I’m not sure I can be as hands on as I want to be when I’m working such crazy hours and on holidays and weekends.

My last day was really perfect. It was extremely news worthy because of the Connecticut school shooting (of which I have decided not to discuss in this post, because this is a happy post and that was void of anything good). I also got to meet Art Alexakis, the lead singer of the band Everclear. (You may remember Everclear from 90s hits such as Father of Mine, or Wonderful). And all my colleagues were super nice and grateful for the time I spent being an intern. Someone even told me that I was the best intern they ever had!!! (Whoa!)

^^First day/Last day. Yes I wore the same outfit.

Scroll down to take a look at all the standups I did during my internship. And with those come, of course…BLOOPERS!

 

I feel so blessed to have gotten this experience to work at a real news station and to learn more about the Hawaiian culture. I am sad that it’s over but I know I’ve got some new and exciting things coming my way…stay tuned.
