Next up for intern introductions is Ally. Ally is also joining our team as a writing intern. And, just as we did with Kevin (and other interns past) we’ll let Ally speak… er, write for herself.
Take it away, Ally!
Please state your name for the internet masses:
My name is Allyson Lorraine Leonard.
What did you come to Radiate Digital to do?
I came to Radiate Digital to get my career started in writing and digital marketing.
Walk us through your first day experience:
I had a great first day! When I first arrived to the office, I was immediately introduced to everyone on the team. I got my email set up and got straight to work on my first official blog post! In the afternoon, Elise and a few other coworkers treated me to lunch at Panera. It was a great way to get to know people a little better!
What are you most excited about moving forward?
Just getting the opportunity to write as much as I do is so exciting, but I am excited for the little side projects as well because it’s a chance for me to learn something new. However, I think I am most excited to write for our wedding industry clients, since I have spent the last 3-4 years working in the wedding industry and it is one of my biggest passions outside of writing.
When you were a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I really wanted to be a famous singer. I play piano and sing, and I was always writing my own music and playing mini “concerts” for my family. That dream followed me into my teenage years, and I even went on to major in Music Business during my first semester at college, but realized that I would rather do something else as a career.
If you could give advice to your 14-year-old self, what would it be?
Don’t obsess over boys! It’s way more important to focus on yourself and what makes you happy. Everything else will fall into place.
Who is your hero (real or fictional)?
My mom is definitely one of my heroes. She is truly my best friend and has always been there to support me through thick and thin. I love you, mom!
What is your jam right now?
I’ve been on a bit of a country kick lately, so I’m going to have to say “Leave the Night On” by Sam Hunt. That song always puts me in a good mood!
Without looking it up, what is the capital of Trinidad and Tobago?
I’m not sure!
(The answer is Port of Spain)
Have you liked Radiate Digital on Facebook and followed us on Twitter?
Yes to Facebook! I don’t use my Twitter as much as I should, but that is definitely on my to-do list.
Would you encourage others to do the same?
