“Interning at Mighty Writers has given me a realistic view of a variety of things I can do in the future. From journalism to marketing to screenwriting, there was never a shortage of information from the highly qualified professionals that work and volunteer at Mighty Writers. There were many times when just having conversations with people, I quickly learned what they did for a living. Then, they were telling how they had gotten there and what a typical day was like for them. What was even better was that none of this was forced; these were simply people who were friendly and knew I was in college so they were eager to share their college and career experiences with me.” –Stephanie Dalce, Mighty Intern
