March 30, 2017 8:55 pm Published by

This spring Maven welcomed three new interns: Carley Roche, Madison Reiver, and Sandra Do.

Name: Carley Roche

Hometown: Chicago, IL

Why did you want to intern at Maven?

My background is in history and research and I was looking for a place that would allow for me to continue to hone my writing skills. I also wanted something that was different from my past internship experiences. Maven is giving me a chance to branch out with social media and thinking about outreach rather than only facts and figures. It’s a great learning opportunity for me to be here.

What projects are you currently working on?

I am working on the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s Craft Show campaign. My job is to create content for the Craft Show’s blog by interviewing artists, past participants of the show, and local influencers of the arts. I hope my posts will attract more interest into this already successful Show as it goes into its 41st year.

What goes on in your life outside of Maven?

I am currently a graduate student at Johns Hopkins University studying Museum Studies and Digital Curation. On Wednesdays I am a research intern at The College of Physicians of Philadelphia for the History of Vaccines website, but I also work on projects for the Mütter Museum and the College’s Medical Library. I also work as a hostess on the weekends at Triangle Tavern in South Philly. During my free time I enjoy going to the dog daycare Pit Stop HQ in the Italian Market to play with the dogs.

What is your favorite place to hang out in Philadelphia?

My favorite place to hang out in Philadelphia is probably my local bar, 12 Steps Down. The staff is fantastic, the patrons all know each other, and the can selection is amazing and always changing. It’s a fun place to relax and enjoy yourself with some friends.

Where do you want to be in 10 years?

In 10 years I want to be working as a collections manager at a history museum. A collection manager works directly with the museum’s objects and makes sure everything in the collection is properly cared for and documented. I love history and learning about different cultures, so I want to share this passion with everyone by preserving objects that tell incredible stories of people from different corners of the world.

I attended the seventh largest gathering of humans in history: the Cubs World Series celebration! Go Cubs!

Name: Madison Reiver

Hometown: Newtown, PA

Why did you want to intern at Maven?

When I found the listing for the intern position at Maven I was immediately interested. I just recently started studying public relations and knew that I wanted to learn more. I thought that interning at an actual PR firm as opposed to working in the PR department for an organization would be a really beneficial experience. Maven represents some great organizations and I’m so happy to be a part of the team!

What projects are you currently working on?

I’m currently working on the clipbooks for the Independence Seaport Museum and Pennsylvania Ballet as well as press releases, website copy, and posting events.

What goes on in your life outside of Maven?

Outside of Maven I’m a full-time student at Temple University. I spend a lot of time listening to and rediscovering classic rock, as music is my passion.

What is your favorite place to hang out in Philadelphia?

My favorite place to hang out in Philadelphia is my grandparent’s restaurant, Dante & Luigi’s in South Philly. It’s always nice to indulge in some great food and see my family.

Where do you want to be in 10 years?

In ten years I hope to be working closely with musicians and doing PR for them.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

I have a pet snake, a butterball python named Mr. Mojo Risin’.

 

Name: Mai (Sandra) Do

Hometown: Hanoi, Vietnam

Why did you want to intern at Maven?

I followed Maven on Twitter because I was drawn to their logo and content. After a while, Maven posted a digital intern that struck my interest, so I applied and was selected!

What projects are you currently working on?

I am curating and creating digital content for law firms and A/E/C firms

What goes on in your life outside of Maven?

I am a college student. I love being busy, with activities ranging from volunteering, being involved with PRSSA’s newsletter committee or trying out new software. At the end of the day, nothing makes me happier than relaxing with calm music like The Beatles’ “While my guitar gently Weeps.”

What is your favorite place to hang out in Philadelphia?

Franklin Square. I love the greens!

Where do you want to be in 10 years?

Any open-minded position that lets me use my skills.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself!

So many! I’d have to say for right now, it’s my love of watching gymnastics.
