Project Description

Robert S. Goodfriend Summer Internship Fund Recipient

“A good marketer needs to be constantly curious about the world, talk to people frequently and observe how they act,” my boss told me. I took his advice, and it turned out that the more I thought about people’s behavior, the better I became at writing.”

My experience with Magic Dragon was very different from what I expected, which was to learn about how to run a start-up company. This was because Magic Dragon needed me to be on specific tasks, rather than merely educating me on theories of entrepreneurship. With hands-on work I was able to acquire solid knowledge of writing marketing material.

I have come to appreciate the liberal arts education more because I found myself constantly inquisitive and passionate for learning and my writing and research ability met my boss’s expectation. On the other hand, the diversity of my colleagues’ backgrounds made me reconsider the definition of “education.” It is no longer limited to knowledge I learn at school but also experience I acquire outside it.
