My internship at The Tribune Newspapers this fall is more than another accomplished sentence on my resume. As a senior, I had the opportunity to participate in the Quest High School Internship Program, where they can arrange an internship to get a head start and a feel of the “real world.” A sparked interest in journalism compelled me to look into a newspaper for my internship and I couldn’t have asked for a better choice. At The Tribune, I received an exclusive glance at the inner workings of the world of community news. Behind the glamor of the printed pages lies the hard and tedious work of each member of the staff. Through the program, I assisted editorial staff and got insight on how each story goes through the rigorous process of compiling, editing and finalization. I first handedly experienced a real workplace environment and learned about the community. Not only has this opportunity made me more aware of what is out there, but also more confident to be able to interact with the world outside the walls of high school. An internship at the high school level really opens up the horizons for seniors looking for a path after high school. Quest always pushes its students to pursue their interests, in and out of class. The social and workplace skills that we acquire through this program help shape us into caring members of our community. This program really ‘seals the deal’ for Quest students and I’m very grateful to be given this opportunity. Thanks Tribune! – Nitya Verma
