Meet Kellie Dietrich: spring 2016 communications intern
Name: Kellie Dietrich
Hometown: Breinigsville, Pa.
School: DeSales University
Major: Communication (Marketing/Advertising/PR track)
1. What do you hope to learn during your time at SWBR?
I want to learn about the marketing side of the company, but also see how all the departments work together to create a final product. I hope to give copywriting a try and see if that is something I’m good at and like doing. I also want to get closer to figuring out what exactly I want to do as my future career because I have a lot of options as a communication major.
2. What made you want to intern at SWBR?
I’ve always had a passion for writing, specifically journalism style. I’ve also always liked examining ads and watching commercials, which is why I wanted to intern at an advertising agency. Plus, I think copywriting is something I could be good at.
3. What’s your favorite ad right now?
I haven’t seen this commercial in a while, but I love the Nationwide commercial where in place of a car, they have a giant baby. It’s funny and the baby is adorable.
4. What’s the most important thing you’ve learned in college?
I’ve learned a lot about getting out of my comfort zone and trying new things. I’m very quiet when I first meet people, so interviewing students and teachers for my college paper has let me talk to people I never would have met otherwise.
5. What are your hobbies?
I like to read a lot. I recently read “The Girl on the Train,” which was a really good suspense novel. And I also like to draw with pencils or colored pencils.
6. Favorite candy?
Kit Kats, but you have to break them in half.
7. What’s your favorite holiday and why?
Christmas because I get to spend a lot of time with my family and it’s the happiest holiday.
8. What’s the best show on television?
“Pretty Little Liars.” I’ve been watching it since my freshman year of high school.
9. What’s the most interesting place you’ve ever visited?
The Philadelphia Magic Gardens was really cool to see. There are so many little details and messages everywhere. You could spend hours looking at it all. It’s crazy to think about how much time it took for the artist to create it all.
10. Name one thing on your bucket list.
I haven’t had the opportunity to travel a lot. The first thing I want to do is get on a plane for the first time and travel somewhere in the U.S. and then start going to other countries. And I definitely want to go on a cruise one day, too.
