WASHINGTON - Throughout the summer, members of the Georgetown University women's basketball team will be sharing their experiences away from the Hilltop. Senior Faith Woodard is interning at NBC Studios as she looks to pursue a broadcast career after graduation.
Last time we spoke, I was the fresh-faced NBC intern blinded by the iridescent New York City lights! Today, I'm much different.
As a seasoned NBC intern and provisional New Yorker, the city has become my stomping ground in a matter of weeks. From the A train to the M, from Brooklyn to Harlem, I've seen it all and done it allâ€¦so here's to catching up!
Since our last chat, I can proudly say that I have been tasked to do just about everything. I've edited countless on-air commercials, helped cast dozens of actors and actresses for NBC shows and I've even managed to jam a few printers along the way.
Who knew NBC has an entire wing dedicated to mass printing? Not me! No worries though, the other intern broke the coffee machine.
I've had endless laughs, countless heart palpitations and dozens of frantic taxi hails, but through it all I've managed to become a thriving intern here in the city Ã¢â'¬" I have Siri, Google Maps and a handful of NBC personnel to thank for it!
From getting the chance to meet 50 Cent to chalking it up with Tony Robbins on set, I've learned that the opportunities up here are endless with a set heart, a set mind, and a big dream!
Things are beginning to happen for me, and I couldn't be happier.
Two months down, three more weeks to go. I'll report back with my latest endeavors soon!
