During the summer between my sophomore and junior year, I completed an internship with Roanoke County Fire and Rescue. As their Public Relations intern, I completed items such as press releases, media advisories, brochures, and fliers. I was also able to go to the scene of two fires to take pictures and speak to the media on behalf of the Department. Through this internship, I was able to see myself in a professional setting and gain interpersonal communication skills. Completing my internship with Roanoke County Fire and Rescue was an amazing experience, and it helped me see that I want to work for an organization or company whose goal is to help others.
