When asked about her internship, here is what Lizzie had to say:

“I’ve really enjoyed my experience at YOakelyPR with the marketing team. Going into this summer I was very excited to grow my skills in marketing. This summer has already been more than I could ask for due to this company’s passion for nonprofits and for building the experience of the interns. I have researched nonprofits and attended networking events where I realized how many driven and amazing people there are out there with similar goals as me! I already find myself using the skills that I have learned in my other professional pursuits.”

Get to Know Elizabeth:

  • From San Francisco, CA
  • Attends school on the East Coast
  • Loves to travel with great friends and her family
  • English major and Communications minor
  • Excited to see what the future holds and to make great connections with great people along the way.

Secret Little Tidbit:

“I love every sad song and sad quote I’ve probably every heard, (which sounds depressing, I know but) therefore I choose not to share them so as not to depress other people. I think this is pretty funny because it is the opposite of my personality. I think I love them because they force me to think beyond my surface level of bubbliness!

When I stumble across something sad on the radio or Pinterest or wherever I may be, I can get stuck for hours trying to understand a stranger’s emotions, which I find fascinating (I guess this may be the English major in me).”

Bucket List Item:

“I know it’s cliché, but I really hope one day I can work up the nerve to go skydiving! ” – Lizzie Newman
