Anticipated with endless excitement each year, the 3 weeks of January that we call Winterim never fail to provide students with opportunities to travel, work, and learn about the world and themselves. Girls are able to delve into internships where they are passionate about the work they are doing and the things they are learning, and each year the opportunities for work experiences and travel seem to be bigger and better than the previous years. Winterim 2018 saw a myriad of internships across the globe and in Nashville, and we were able to interview and profile a few students to not only learn more about their internships but also the impact their experiences left on them.

Lia Hayduk, class of 2018, interned with Juvenile Court Judge Sheila Calloway where she sat in on hearings and learned about the many components to the Juvenile Justice System on a typical day. When asked why she was interested in working with Judge Calloway and the Juvenile Justice System, she responded, “I love kids and have always loved Mock Trial, so I thought that juvenile justice would be the perfect intersection between the two.” With Judge Calloway as a mentor and through sitting in on cases, she learned about the three types of cases brought to court in the juvenile justice system: delinquency, neglect and dependency, and parentage. When asked about what she learned most from her internship, she was said she was shocked to learn about the violence that exists amongst youth not even 2 miles from her home. She also learned that there is a big need in Nashville to help children, and getting involved with the Oasis Center is an excellent way to do so. Hayduk said that after completing her internship, she is more interested in working in the juvenile justice system and that her dream job is to become a Juvenile Court Judge just like Judge Calloway. When asked about something that left a large impact on her during her internship, she said, “Seeing the compassion and love that Judge Calloway treated everyone with really changed me for the better.”

Through her internship, Lia was able to discover that she is extremely interested in helping kids on a judicial level and combine two things that she is passionate about: kids and the law.

Senior Margaret Rogers interned with Lightning 100, a popular local music station where she learned about their mission, shadowed various people in their office, wrote articles for the Lightning 100 website, and went to many events at night with local artists. The radio station is Nashville’s longest running independent station, and they dedicate 30-40% of their music played on the air to small bands and local artists. Describing her initial interest in interning with Lightning 100, Margaret said, “I have been listening to Lightning 100 my whole life, and it has been a huge part of my own love of music and childhood.” When writing for the website, she wrote reviews of past concerts and copyright for the sales team since all of the commercials for local businesses played on the station are recorded in the station’s studio.

Margaret’s work with Lightning 100 allowed her access to night events such as Moon Taxi’s listening party for their new album at the planetarium and Nashville Sunday Night, which is a show hosted by Lightning 100 each Sunday. She described how everyone at Lightning 100 was so happy with their job, and she felt reassured to see people who love what they do every day. Students not only learn about the workplace and daily life of having a job during their internships, but they also learn many things about themselves. When asked what she learned about herself in her internship, Margaret said, “I think the biggest thing I learned was how passionate I am about music, specifically local, indie, alternative music. I felt like I could sufficiently participate in conversation about music, which felt a little empowering. I also realized how much I love Nashville and how badly I want to come back after college.”

Margaret’s internship at Lightning 100 allowed her to dive into something she already had a connection to and felt strongly about, which ultimately led her to discover an even deeper passion for music and a desire to work in the music business in the future.
