It’s been nearly a year since my first Rady blog post reflecting on my first month as an intern, and I am sad to say this will be my last. My yearlong internship with the Rady School is coming to a close and I’ve come quite a way since. For those who don’t know, I’m the assistant writer within the marketing department here at the Rady School. For the past year I’ve been given the opportunity to work with wonderful staff, faculty, students and alums and now it’s time I send one last thank you before my departure.
To the students and alums: your ingenuity and innovative spirits have inspired me and will continue to inspire in my own educational track forward. Never before have I met such a diverse group of scholars with such bright visions and tenacious personalities. I wish you boundless success in your own ventures and I know you will all continue to make the Rady School proud.
To the faculty: your expertise is unmatched and your knowledge is limitless. I learned quite a bit from those I’ve had the pleasure of interacting with. With you, I know the students are in good hands.
Finally, to the staff: The school hasn’t built it’s winning reputation on luck alone, it’s with your help and strong work ethic that a startup school can become as impactful as it has become today. On a personal note, to my marketing team; Melinda, Kristine, Sean, Maria, Carleen, Joleen, Arturo and Joy, I thank you the most. You’ve allowed me the space to improve my craft and have showed me what it means to be a valued coworker and friend. You have become my second family and I am thrilled and honored to have taken this incredible journey with you all. I aim to carry myself in my future career with the same light and energy that each one of you has carried throughout your own journeys.
As I move onto the next phase of my life, I wish each and every person reading this the same positivity and acceptance I was met with during my time at Rady. I will miss you all dearly and I hope you “never stop” fighting for what you want in life. This is Pablo, signing off. Thank you, thank you.
