This is Jessica DiNapoli, Champlain College student and Seven Days' newest intern. There will be one more intern joining Mike, Will, and I in June, making us a team of four, a "quad' effect as it has been referred to around the Seven Days office, which helps celebrate this summer's Lake Champlain Quadricentennial theme.
My work experience thus far has been on both farms and in bars, so immersing myself in the newspaper world is most exciting and a breath of fresh air (but speaking of beer and horses, check out these two contests: Foal Raffle and Otter Creek).
I have just returned from a semester in Ireland and after scampering throughout Europe, I am eager for a summer at Seven Days — my adventures began yesterday with an early morning 18-mile bike ride with writer Kevin J. Kelley followed by a local poetry reading. Keep reading to learn more!
[Ed. note: the bike ride and poetry reading are our version of hazing. Welcome, Jessica.]
