This week’s In the Field Friday is Courtney Heiser. Courtney will be transitioning to Columbus for the fall semester. She is originally from Attica, Ohio and is majoring in agricultural communication. Courtney has spent her summer with the Ohio Soybean Council in Worthington as their communications intern.
Her internship has kept her busy with several projects, including managing and generating content for social media platforms. She has been able to work on the Ohio Soybean News magazine and help develop new activities for their outreach programs. Her internship even allowed her to go to the Ohio State Fair and talk with Ohio consumers and farmers about the soybean checkoff program and other important information.
Courtney’s piece of advice for students was for them to get involved and try new things.
“Be sure to take advantage of all the opportunities in front of you. ATI offers SO MANY opportunities for you to get involved and try new things. From helping others move in through the OWL program, stepping out of your comfort zone to travel abroad, scoring a campus job, networking with peers and faculty at club events, to joining an intramural team – you can find your fit and build life-long friendships as well as connections for your future, so take advantage of those opportunities!”
Her last piece of advice was to make sure that “Whatever you do, do it with all your heart. Being passionate and genuine will get you far.”
