Interning for Noah Education Fund

100819-Internship Stipend

Last summer, fall, and winter semesters I was fortunate to be a telecommute intern for Noah Education Fund as an editor and writer for their writing platform: Noahwriting. Their goal is to inspire authors to write with positive and helpful critiques. In addition to creating a welcoming, friendly community for fellow writers. Noah Education Fund also provides potential awards for author’s works, such as The Excellence in Writing Award.

As a typical English Major, I am constantly reading and writing. My dream job is to put these enjoyable hobbies to work and be an editor for a publishing house. When I came across the position for Noah Education Fund, I knew the internship was meant for me. The internship required me to read short works, edit for content and grammar, and compose articles about writing and reading for the middle school level. Through this internship I had the opportunity to write two articles, both of which were published on the platform. In my first article, “Understanding the 6 Sentence Structures,” I discuss the six sentence structures, including fragments, and how to construct them properly. My second article, “How to be a Better Test Taker,” addresses helpful tips to become a better test taker.

I enjoyed editing and reading short works on Noah Education Fund’s platform. Noah Education’s Fund opened my eyes to the real world of editing; thus, granting me excitement for my future career. They were very flexible and worked well around my class schedule. Being a telecommute internship, I was able to access the written works from my own computer at any time. In addition to this, all assignments were given to me two weeks in advance before completion. This gave me plenty of time for scheduling, and my superiors were always helpful and praised my hard work. Being an intern for Noah Education Fund is a wonderful experience. I feel one step closer to my dream job.

I am thankful to have been a Sigma Tau Delta Internship Stipend recipient. Like many internships, my position was unpaid. The stipend award aided me tremendously, allowing me to fund housing, meals, transportation, and paper expenses. Altogether, the charges costed me about 700 dollars a month. As a student worker, my financial situation is not ideal. The stipend award helped bring this cost down and I am greatly thankful for that.
