EMILY SJOBERG

FALL PR INTERN

A Point Park University student completing an internship 900 miles away from the company office? Welcome to 2020.
 
Emily Sjoberg, a junior public relations and advertising major, is spending the semester at her home in northern Maine, but she’s all-in with WordWrite. As our fall PR intern, she’s developing skills in inbound marketing tactics, media relations and implementing social media strategies — and her curiosity and passion for writing make her a great fit with the team.
 
When Emily can break away from her desk, she enjoys hiking (that close to the border, she better), reading and watching “Jeopardy.” She also helps instruct a special needs dance class and has volunteered as a choreographer for a local children’s theater group.

THREE THINGS THAT MIGHT SURPRISE YOU

  1. Fiercely dedicated to minimizing the hand she’s been dealt, Emily is an executive board member of the Point Park Uno League, which adds some professionalism to the classic card game.
  2. She has a “metal spine” from a spinal fusion surgery.
  3. “On a good day,” she’s the best thumb wrestler around.
People are capable, at any time in their lives, of doing what they dream of.   - Paulo Coelho
