Back to My Work
After spending the spring semester of 2009 studying in Singapore, I decided to stay for the summer and work in the Media Relations division of the Singapore Sports Council.
I was the first foreign intern to work in this government branch and I worked with a small team to coordinate all media arrangements for the first Asian Youth Games, a large-scale international Olympic sporting event involving over 45 Asian countries and 1,500 athletes. As part of my duties, I organized interviews and press conferences and led a team of Media Relations Volunteers to carry out on-site work. I also wrote press releases and helped construct a comprehensive Media Guide for foreign journalists.
