Education:University of Ulster - BSc Hons Business with Marketing with Diploma in Industrial Studies
Role:Consumer Marketing Intern
Location:New York, NY

The US-NI Mentorship Program has provided me with the opportunity to work with HBO; a premium television brand, in one of the most fast paced cities in the world. My role as Consumer Marketing Intern has added greatly to my skill set and offering in business. Throughout my time in New York I have been involved with various projects; from marketing and social media campaigns to product development of fan merchandise and the internationalization of our e-commerce HBO Shop. The American work culture teaches you to fully immerse yourself in your role; everyone works extremely hard with a great attitude while reaping the rewards of success.

As part of the program we also get to attend many networking events where I have met goal driven individuals such as Graeme McDowell, Chris O’Dowd and Senator George Mitchell. Outside of work, I have embraced everything that New York has to offer, attending various music events and volunteering at American Ireland Fund events throughout the year. I have travelled to other cities too including Philadelphia, Atlantic City, Washington D.C., Boston and Nashville. Some of my highlights are meeting some of my favorite bands during my stay including Mumford and Sons, Ed Sheeran and Snow Patrol. You just never know what this city has in store and it’s a great experience.
