Day to Day at the Internship
Every day at my internship was different; it depended on who needed me. It could be anything from helping the Accounting Department organize old receipts to working with promoters putting event lists and spreadsheets together. I also assisted with walk throughs to ensure that concert space conditions were ready for the sound crew and the artists.

The Best Part of My Internship
I really enjoyed working special events. I liked experiencing the background atmosphere and seeing what goes on behind the scenes. I saw the entire process of planning and executing an event. I learned how far ahead of time events are planned and what goes into running a venue and hosting an event. Even when something went wrong, people stayed calm and made it work. Problem solving is a big part of the job. Another great aspect of my internship was the people I worked with. Everyone was really friendly and made me feel like part of the office family.

Practical Experience
My supervisor had me read and analyze contracts after which she would ask me questions. This was very helpful because at the time I was taking Contracts and Legal Issues so I really was able to take what I was learning in the classroom and put it into practice. 

Favorite Moment
I attended the Season 6 Premiere Party of Rue Paul's Drag Race. While I was there I ran into Shangela who had performed at last year's Manhattanville Drag Show. Shangela remembered Manhattanville fondly and gave me a big hug.  

Advice
Do not underestimate the internship search process. I underestimated how much time and work goes into finding an internship. I will be interning again in the fall however I will start my search a lot sooner. Don't get discouraged if you don't hear back, it can be stressful but if you stay on top of it and you are qualified you will find an internship.
