Rachel Goetz

(Former) Office of Public Affairs Intern

My experience with BBG continues to give me an understanding of how life outside of my “school bubble” works. This opportunity is exciting and interactive, putting current events into perspective through an international and communication lens. Not only is this internship extending my worldview, it is also helping me focus my career goals into what I am passionate about in a hands-on setting. Through being involved with events, the media, and social projects, I have gained an enriching exposure to both the press and politics. One opportunity that I have really enjoyed is BBG’s willingness to let me participate in meetings with people who are making changes in news and media. Listening to how different programs are being implemented has provided me with a dynamic idea of how an idea spurs a meeting, which turns into a project, which evolves into creating a difference.
