Nice to Meet You (Sincerely, The Intern)

General, Intern, Personal Development

I’m Kendra, the newest member of the nine10 team. This summer I’ll be interning alongside awesome marketing experts, and blogging about my experiences.

I’m a student at Grant MacEwan University in Edmonton, majoring in Professional Communications. “What does that even mean?

At nine10 I’ll be writing content for blogs, websites, and occasionally trying my hand at different skills around the agency. In the coming months I’ll be sharing what I learn via the nine10 blog, so make sure you check it out!
