“It’s been an amazing experience because I’ve been planning events for networking between composers, directors, and writers.” – Jessica on her internship in Dublin

Jessica Kisluk is a senior at SUNY Owsego, which is located in upstate New York. She’s a Broadcasting and Mass Communication with a minor in Arts Management and Graphic Design. And she’s going everywhere!

In this interview I talk with Jessica about her unique study abroad experience. Although she’s technically studying abroad for a semester, she will have spent the better part of this year in Europe due to a mini study abroad experience she did last spring in Italy and a summer family trip to Poland. She does a great job of educating us about Irish culture and tells us everything she has in store for the duration of her trip. But she doesn’t stop there.

We also learn that Jessica has also secured an internship with the Screen Directors Guild of Ireland. This interview is perfect if you’re thinking about studying abroad in Dublin.

A quote Jessica would like to leave you with:

“Whatever you do in life may be insignificant but it is very important that you do it” – Ghandi
