Have you met Laura yet? (She’s kind of a big deal)

working hard at FPA intern headquarters

Dearest First Person Arts fans, storytellers, artists, and friends,

I'm Laura Reeve and I'm FPA's marketing intern. You might know me from various blog posts about our 2010 Festival, Grand Slam storyteller questionnaires, and Oscar docs. You may have also seen me at different events or even on the streets of Philly distributing flyers, postcards, and posters. Basically, I'm a wonder intern. The best ever, if you ask me. I've been doing this slave labor for $0 an hour and the occasional back-handed compliment from Karina and Tiffany for almost a year now.

I'm a twenty-year-old student at Bryn Mawr College studying English and Creative Writing. When I “grow up” (I'm still doubtful that growing u

p is a real thing) I would like to write and work with words and stories in basically any capacity. I like to write weird stories about Barbie dolls and old men. I also like to write about the patriarchy and why slut-shaming sucks on my blog.

Being with FPA for almost a year has introduced me to Philly's amazing art, lit, and storytelling scene. I've met great people, interviewed talented artists, and even learned how to take the El all by myself.

Convincing, right? I bet you want to intern and/or volunteer for First Person Arts now too.

So, next time you see me at an event don't forget to say “hey!” Maybe then I'll tweet about you, or something.

Editor's (aka Karina's) note- The occasional back handed compliment aside, I sincerely think Laura is an awesome intern and we're very lucky to have her. In fact, I plan on never letting her leave. Ever.
