·         What was your job and what were your responsibilities?

My job was keeping track of severe storms and rainfall rates. This summer was a very wet an had a potential to bring heavy floods to certain areas of Central Florida.

·         What projects did you work on while completing your internship?

Broadcast Meteorology is a “self” project. You practice everyday in front of the green screen and just focus on improvement.

·         What are you career aspirations and have they changed since you completed your internship/co-op?

My career aspirations are to become a Chief Meteorologist. Only 8% Chief Meteorologist are woman and I want to be apart of that 8% or change it.

·         In what ways has your co-op/internship experience impacted your college experience?

My internship experience has impacted my college experience by teaching me to reach out, ask questions, and always be eager to learn more

·         What advice do you have for students interested in obtaining an internship/co-op?

Advice I have for students is APPLY, that is the hardest part. Also if there is no internship being offered you can still send in a resume. Always apply, you never know who may get their hands on it and if they decide to open a position up, you already are ahead.
