Nyhus is so excited to welcome our new intern, Miranda! Read to learn more about this Seattle University graduate and avid outdoor enthusiast.
What are you looking forward to most in your new position?
I’m really excited to jump back into the world of PR and Public Affairs after taking a break for a while because of the pandemic. This is my first job in this industry post-college and I can’t wait to take what I’ve learned from school and other internships and apply it to the projects at Nyhus. With any new position, there’s the pressure to succeed, but that is a challenge that motivates and inspires me to do my best work everyday.
What is your proudest career moment?
My favorite time during college was being able to contribute to the art scene in Seattle. I had the opportunity to work at the Seattle International Film Festival, which is the largest film festival in the United States, regularly showing over 400 films in a month across the city. I was on the events team and the amount of work we put in behind the scenes, so that people could enjoy independent cinema from artists who don’t normally get representation in the media, was a really proud moment of my career.
What’s the best part about your new job so far?
My favorite part about any new job is getting to know my coworkers. Since Nyhus is a small team, it makes it easier to connect and get to know each other better. They’ve already made me feel welcomed and inspired. Everyone at Nyhus is a communication expert and I’m excited to learn from each one of them.
What do you like to do outside of work?
I was lucky enough to grow up surrounded by the mountains of Idaho, so I have always loved outdoor activities. I enjoy skiing, mountain biking, rock climbing, and camping! When I’m in the city and I don’t have as easy access to the mountains, I like to go to museums or go to the park to journal or draw.
What was your New Year’s resolution?
Every year I always tell myself I’m going to read more. When I was younger, you could always catch my face in a book. When I got older and reading became required in school, my eagerness to read dwindled. Now that I am out of school and I am able to choose the books I read, there’s no excuse for me not to. One of my New Year’s resolutions last year and will be again this year, is to read at least one book every month.
