Kathy Ma, a junior at Acton Boxborough High School, told us that she had several interests: writing, business and science. She writes for her school literary magazine and is on the regional science team, so we combined all of her interests by establishing a communications internship at a state agency for the development and promotion of Life Sciences.
Kathy interned for the Vice President of Communications. In her journal, she wrote, ” I write press releases, media advisories and emails. I’m involved in researching prospective companies and I’ve been able to sit in on conference calls as well as attend Life Science events and board meetings.
