While studying at Babson and meeting other college students my age, I have not yet met someone who does not believe that they will be wildly successful someday.

How Google Docs Saved Me This Summer

If there was no Google Docs, I wonder how my team at work and I would be able to complete our work efficiently and well. Of course, I am not saying that saying Google Docs is the final, say-all, end-all of word processors. There are definitely opportunities where Google Docs may present itself as the…

First Internship, First Day

I look around as I push through the revolving doors to WGBH’s main office. This day was the start of my internship and I was filled with excitement and nervousness.
