My name is Nene Narh-Mensah and I’m a member of the 2019 cohort who studies journalism at the university. This past summer I completed a virtual internship with Diamond Kut Media, an online music and culture publication. The experience was engaging.
The internship lasted from July to October. I wrote stories for their Kool Korner blog including track and album reviews as well as interviews with up-and-coming artists. I even had the pleasure of interviewing another CSS scholar who makes music himself. During my time at Diamond Kut, I learned how to be more effective with my time management and write more expressively. The internship required me to release reviews quickly, detailing all the elements that make up the songs in an appealing way. Repeating that process was a great foray into the field of journalism.
Interning at Diamond Kut gave me great insight on how to improve my writing and manage my time; I will take this insight with me into the workforce.
