Journal Entry 2

I work under Nahian Ayes, who works as the World Voices Festival General Manager. I work as an intern to prepare for the World Voices Festival, which is a literary festival meant to gather many different writers from different nationalities to discuss the way the world is changing and the direction that the field of literature is heading in. I wanted to work in this department because I felt that by getting experience in preparing for a festival, I would get experience in advertising and designing for the festival. I first caught interest in this company through CUNY Cultural Corps. At one of the Cultural Corps worksite meetings, I met with one their representatives where I handed them my resume and went on to explain about myself. They asked me what was my personal interest in this internship, what do I hope to do, and how can my experiences help them as a company.
