My name is Alexa and I’m a junior at Sacred Heart University studying Media Arts.
Becoming a Radio Intern was not the easiest task for me. I have a tendency to be shy when I first meet people and to put the icing on the cake, I suck at interviews to begin with. My wonderful interviewer, David Brody, knows this first hand because three applications, two interviews, and one semester with the night show later, he got sick of my constant emails and finally let me step foot into the studio as an Elvis Duran and the Morning Show intern!! Just kidding. Brody actually told me that I needed to be more outgoing and confident. I took his advice and from one interview to the next, he noticed the difference! I can confidently say… It was worth the wait.
A little bit about myself: I am beyond obsessed with music and I got my first piece of DJ equipment when I was 14-years-old. I aspire to be best friends with Camila Cabello. Dunkin’ Donuts is my everything - Alexa absolutely runs on Dunkin’. Dad jokes are my specialty and finally, I am a complete night owl. I usually go to bed at 3 am and wake up at 1 pm so my world has been turned upside down to say the least, but again… worth it.
My first few weeks here have been a dream. If I wasn’t already enough of a nervous wreck on my first day, I got to be on air. I imitated Amazon Alexa and told Elvis about how it has ruined my life. So far, Grace VanderWaal, Andy Grammer, and Nick Fradiani have come in and performed live. Have I mentioned waiting for this internship was worth it?
I’m super excited to spend my semester interning here and learn from the best in the business! Good things come to those who wait!!
