Internship Description Description
I read and covered features, novels, and pilots for Oscar nominated director, Darren Aronofsky.

Who was supporting you in with work? How did you work with your mentor or faculty/staff/success advisors?
Jenna Campolieta has always gone out of her way to be incredibly helpful and kind to me. She is warm, approachable, and genuinely has students’ best interests at heart.

How has this project has been impactful or transformative — for you personally or for those this work has impacted:
I had a wonderful learning experience at my internship. It helped me steer my career in the best direction for my future. Interning at a prestigious production company is going to be what secures me a job. After this experience, I feel confident and competent as I search for a full time position in my field.

What would you do differently? How would you advise a student who is going to do something similar?
I would advise a student who took upon a similar internship, especially if it’s remote, to write out a schedule every day and set structured times for breaks.

Short summary
I had a lovely time at Protozoa. I read scripts, gave coverage, and worked in the office sometimes.
