Sabrina Caserta, a junior at Roger Williams University, had the opportunity to interview an actor at an exciting event and had her article published on her first week interning at The Hill. Sabrina talks about her experience below.
“When The Hill’s In The Know Reporter, Judy Kurtz, was looking for a volunteer to cover an Oceana Event on Tuesday night, I jumped at the opportunity. I interviewed actor and Oceana board member, Sam Waterston. I also spoke with some other board members and attendees for background, as well as Rhode Island Senator, Sheldon Whitehouse. By 10 am the next day, my article had been submitted for editing and back-read. By 4 pm that day it was up on the web! Out, covering the news, is where I feel I need to be. I’m very appreciative of the opportunity.”
