Hello to you (the internet), from me (the intern).
I’m pleased to announce my position as Cassidy and Stacy’s latest intern. A little bit about me: my name is Monique. Sometimes I say my middle name is Cornelius to see if anyone questions it.
(It has never been questioned.)
I am a journalist studying at Western. You all might be thinking “Well, hey now, what’s a journalist doing working in film production? Shouldn’t she be writing FAKE NEWS?? What is going ON?!?”
And to that I have two things to say: One, please calm down. There is no need to yell. Two, the qualities that make a good journalist easily translate to pretty much any communication position. You know who else is a journalist? Olivia Martin-McGuire, director of “China Love,” an excellent documentary about the pre-wedding photoshoot culture in China.
Now that I have revealed myself to be a journalist, you must know and accept that I cannot (as much as I dearly, dearly want to), in good conscience, use an Oxford Comma. AP style forbids it, and I am nothing if not devoted to AP style.
All right, enough shop talk.
Anyone wonder what I looked like on my first day as an intern? I was fortunate to have the moment documented!!! See below.
Happy to make your acquaintance, look forward to talking more soon.
Until next time,
MC (Monique Cornelius)
