NYC Fellowship Video

“Interning in New York and working for Fox News Channel was the best summer experience I could have ever asked for. At Fox, I assisted in conducting research and verifying information for producers and news anchors which greatly strengthened my research skills and networking capabilities. Additionally, it was a dream come true to meet and interact with all the news anchors that I had grown up watching.

“I never imagined that I would daily get to walk through Times Square on my way to work for the best cable network in America. Learning to navigate through the city and engage in the unique culture there definitely made me more confident and independent. Some of my best memories from New York include nights on rooftops overlooking the city lights and eating pizza in Brooklyn. I quickly fell in love with the city and cannot wait to go back.”
