At any given time, there are a handful of motivated college students in the D+P internship program. We recently sat down with Alyssa LaMont, one of our Monday & Wednesday interns, for a quick Q&A session. Read on below to learn more about Alyssa!
Give us a little bit of background about yourself!
I am a senior at Saint Joseph’s University. I am majoring in English with a focus on Creative Writing; paired with minors in Medieval Renaissance and Reformation Studies and Communications Studies. I have an older sister, and one of the laziest pups in the world!
Describe yourself in three words.
Creative, Adventurous, and LOUD
What did you want to be when you were growing up?
I wanted to be a part time Astronaut part time Sea-Naught (that made sense didn’t it?)
What’s something few people knew about you, but you wish they did?
I don’t think there is anything about me I keep hidden. I like to be open about who I am and what I like, so maybe people wish they knew less about me!
If you could give a piece of advice to your high school/younger self, what would it be?
Don’t let people tell you what you want to be when you grow up, follow your heart and choose English from the start. (A little rhyme in there just for emphasis).
