Meet the Intern: Leah
My name is Leah Kogan and I’m a new intern here at Aigner/Prensky Marketing Group! I am a rising junior at Roger Williams University with a major in Media Communications and minor in Arts Management. This is my first internship so I am extremely excited to be spending the summer here, gaining all of the knowledge and experience that I can!
At school I am the Promotions Director for our student run radio station, WQRI. My duties include running the station’s social media, promoting all of our events, and widening the station’s influence in the community. In addition, I host a weekly 2-hour radio show where I talk about different bands and play really awesome alternative music. This is by far the highlight of my week. I’m also a member of our Public Relations Student Society of America chapter. My favorite thing to do with PRSSA is go on PR firm tours to New York City, Boston, and Providence and attend different speakers we bring to campus.
When I’m not at school I live in Boston so I never have a shortage of things to do whether that’s walking in the local parks with my friends to dog watch or just exploring the cities of Boston and Providence. In my free time I love to go to as many concerts as I can, averaging around 2-3 a month. Everybody I know thinks I’m crazy for going to so many. When I’m not busy with school or concerts, I can be found outside reading a book or snuggled under a blanket binge-watching the latest sci-fi show on Netflix. This summer in addition to interning here, I will be working at Target! There is very rarely a time where I am bored.
This summer I am really looking forwards to learning more about public relations and event planning. I will take every chance I can get to be involved and help with anything that I can. I’m really excited to gain experience outside of a classroom setting and do real hands-on work, making the most out of my time here at Aigner/Prensky Marketing.
