“My life has
been unreal these
past couple of years,” exclaimed
MassCommunications senior Madeline Peters. Unreal is an understatement, as the 22year old has interned at over four major places taking her all over the U.S.It all started when the Pensacola, FL native went back home the summerafter her freshman year.
“It’s empowering as a young person how you are capable of doing more,”
Peters said about her first serious internship at a consulting firm.When Peters returned to LSU, she started thinking about how she stillwanted to get her feet wet and open new doors.The summer after her sophomore year she applied to work for the
Rock theVote
campaign, and to her surprise she got it. She was then able to travel and endedup in Denver, CO working for the National Democratic Convention where she got thechance to watch President Obama give his candidacy speech.This experience sparked her interest in news and media.
Through the “Rock the Vote” campaign, Peters was able
 
to “engage others in a career” as Peters puts it,”
something sh
e has always wanted to do.”
 When Peters returned to LSU again, she was even more eager. So she spokewith her mentor Adrienne Moore, the director of the Reilly Center, and theydiscussed different opportunities she could take. Through this, she got to apply for aspot to intern for
Meet the Press
for an entire semester in Washington, D.C.
With her natural leadership abilities, “she really activated the voice,” Mooresaid about Peter’s inte
rnship experience.
