Hi! My name is Emily Higgins and I am a new intern for Tell Your Story. This is the first step in building my post college career and I’m very excited about this opportunity to assist George, Amanda and the Tell Your Story team in the unique and personal way they promote their clients’ brands.
I am currently a senior at DePaul University where I am studying for a degree in Communications and Media. However, where I started is far from where I am now. Over the past three years, I’ve had a variety of experiences, beginning with attending the University of Mississippi (Ole Miss) my freshman year.
I packed up and moved south in hopes of branching out and experiencing something new. Over the course of that year, I had many incredible experiences including the legendary football atmosphere, getting a taste of a very different culture, and had the opportunity to get a first-hand experience at the 2008 Presidential debates between Barack Obama and John McCain that took place on campus.
Although Ole Miss was everything I had imagined and more, I found that you can take the girl out of the city, but you can’t take the city out of the girl. I yearned to be back in the Midwest where I missed deep-dish pizza, Lake Michigan, fellow Bears fans, and shopping along Michigan Avenue— some of the things that make Chicago the best city in the world, and made my decision to transfer to DePaul easy.
In my spare time I am a volunteer at PAWS Chicago, a local animal shelter, where I help promote the idea of adoption and goal of creating a No Kill Chicago for stray and abandoned pets.
My major in Communications and Media at DePaul has piqued my interest in business communications, and I am eager to express my creativity and enthusiasm through my work at Tell Your Story!
