As a junior, I interned at an online magazine, The Stylish Sophisticate, as a Stylist and Editorial Assistant where my team and I partnered with a fashion house called Bene Rialto to run a fashion contest with them on our website. It was a great time to be involved with the magazine because I was able to see the inner workings of what it takes to set up a fashion contest and use social media for advertising.Alyssa Amato ’16
The JK Watson Fellowship application process has been an exciting and enriching experience. Although applying was not easy or free from anxiety, it allowed me to gain many useful skills such as resume building, communicating effectively during an interview, and how to present my value as a business person. I was initially interested in the Fellowship because of the working and hands-on experience it offered, but I came to be more excited about the idea of working with a carefully selected group of business people with a vision of their own.Ethan Giroux’ 22

Not only did I start to find myself and carve my path, but MMC and my professors were extremely supportive of me and my career.
