Two articles written by Jonna Humphries '10 appeared in New York Magazine recently. Humpries worked as an intern for the magazine as a member of their public relations department during the summer.

She wrote a story about  Christian Siriano, a fashion designer and Project Runway winner; and another featuring Nigel Barker, a fashion photographer and judge from America’s Next Top Model who hosted a photography exhibition on Canadian seal hunting.

“The majority of my time was spent researching for press clips and creating and managing New York Magazine‘s Facebook fan page.’ Humphries explains. “It was very hands-on and taught me a great deal about the wonderful world of journalism.”

Humphries also interned at The Today Show where she worked directly with producers and anchors. She interviewed Tom Brokaw and Hoda Kotb.

“Overall, I had an incredible experience this past summer learning the in and outs of both print and television,” she says. “I’m very excited for what next summer will bring.”
