Beloit Intern Linh T. Dieu Nguyen Advocates for Immigrants in D.C.
Linh says, ” I’m a Communications intern at Asian Americans Advancing Justice | AAJC in Washington DC. The experience has been really eye opening. I learnt digital communication strategies through drafting social posts for our Twitter, doing some live Tweets for our press conferences, scheduling Tweets for several Twitter storm on Census, Reuniting Families Act and Remembering Oak Creek shooting and conducting some interviews for blog posts. I also learnt about the fast pace of communications as we need to watch news everyday and if there’s issues that line up with our programs of work, we will need to produce materials including press releases/statements and social posts. I think this experience has helped me a lot with skills needed for a job in communications in the future and I am still eager to learn more as I have a few more weeks left.”
