What is your favorite internship memory thus far? Anytime I'm able to have lunch on the roof!

Why Ogilvy? I've had two strong female family members come through Ogilvy, and I've aspired to work here since I was little. Ogilvy set both my aunt and cousin on amazing career paths and they've consistently credited it as giving them a solid foundation to be successful in work and in life. I hope to follow in their footsteps.

What do you think is special about this internship? I think the intern orientation and Lunch & Learn series is incredibly special. While other internship programs might have similar structures, I really feel like Ogilvy's approach from day 1 has been to make us interns feels like the world is our oyster for the summer. I immediately felt comfortable and considered, especially when I was able to talk to associates and assigned a mentor to guide me. I think sometimes interns can feel forgotten about, but not a day of this internship has gone by where I don't feel like I'm touching base with someone and growing as a young professional.

Go-to office outfit? High-wasted jeans, nice top, summer sandals!

Guilty pleasure? First floor vending machine snacks!!

Proudest moment to date? Being asked for my own insights during a creative team meeting!

Favorite thing to do in NYC? Eating ramen at Momofuku Noodle Bar!
