Rising senior Maddy Martin learned of the summer internship at WAMU 88.5 public radio after information was mailed to Madeira’s Co-Curriculum Office this spring. Maddy, who has shown a particular interest in media and journalism while at Madeira, took the initiative to apply and interview for the position. She was selected for the internship and has been enjoying learning about public radio and meeting radio hosts such as Kojo Nnamdi and Diane Rehm. 

In an email to the Co-Curriculum Office she wrote this about her experience:

“My internship at WAMU 88.5 is, so far, amazing. As the photography blogger, I cover stories each week about the Summer of Service and what happens behind the scenes at WAMU, switching between the photographer and writer roles.”

Maddy is working alongside another local rising senior. You can follow their work on their website: wamuinterns.tumblr.com or on their Twitter account @wamuinterns.
