Hi! My name is Lucy Dwyer and I’m Tell Your Story’s new summer intern. I’m super excited to get hands-on experience in the world of PR, marketing and storytelling.
I’m a rising junior in the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University where I’m majoring in journalism, minoring in sociology and pursuing a certificate in Integrated Marketing Communications. At school, I design and write for North by Northwestern, a student-centered magazine, and head up social media for Nine Lives, a storytelling podcast. I’m passionate about using my journalistic skills to build better brands.
Outside of school, I spend most of my time managing my Instagram account, @thefoodiefriend. As a long time lover of food, I started The Foodie Friend in 2015 as an outlet to post the numerous food photos I was accumulating on my phone. Today, I have more than 15,000 followers. I really enjoy exploring new restaurants in Chicago, interacting with fellow Instagrammers and learning through trial and error how to manage a brand. It doesn’t hurt that I get some free food too.
This summer, I’m excited to dive into the world of content marketing at Tell Your Story. It’s only my second day but I’ve already gotten to draft social media posts and sit in on a client brainstorming session. I can’t wait to see what the summer has in store. Make sure to check back to read about the projects we’re working on, and feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
