Katie contacted us from Taipei, Taiwan. A junior at the Taipei American School, her interests included theater and communications. With previous experiences in acting and directing, she was interested in a part-time internship in the States that would introduce her to marketing and public relations as well as leaving some time for college tours.
We arranged an internship for Katie that combined both of her interests. She was mentored by the Director of Marketing and Public Relations at Wheelock Family Theatre in Boston. Katie told us that she gained insight into many aspects of running a theater including corporate media sponsorship, advertising sales and community partnerships. She planed to apply to American liberal arts colleges as a theater and communications major and planned to include her letter of recommendation from the Director in her college applications.
