Joining the “Start Up World”

Five weeks into the summer and just after leaving my first internship, I lined up another opportunity at a company called RunKeeper, a Boston-based start up app that tracks athletic activities such as running, cycling, hiking, etc. This opportunity came at the perfect time and I began almost immediately after I left the brewery. My…

My Journey Begins…Junior Achievement, here I come! — A recap of my summer so far

Hello! I am excited to be sharing my summer experience! I didn’t take the traditional route of vacationing, interning at one of my favorite firms, or just taking it easy after my first year at Babson ended.

A Maturer Lifeguard

It’s kind of strange coming home, especially when it feels like you have never left. Before going to school last summer I had been working at my local YMCA for 2 years as a lifeguard and swim instructor. Then last summer I got a promotion as one of the summer swim coaches. When I was…
