Bethany Eckman, LCA Class of 2016, recently completed an amazing summer internship in New York City. Bethany had the unique opportunity to intern for HBO’s Chief Financial Officer, Jessica Holscott.
Bethany was able to sit in on multiple strategy and budget meetings for WarnerMedia’s new streaming service, HBO Max. She had the chance to tour CNN and attend a “Girls Who Code” conference where the founder, Reshma Saujani, presented a keynote speech. Bethany’s experiences allowed her to learn about international business, controllership, and accounting.
“It was an absolutely incredible experience. It was all encompassing because I was able to see what it was like to work in New York City, work for a large corporation, and what it would be like to work in finance. This has definitely confirmed my interest in business, particularly Business Analytics.”
Bethany also secretly “fangirled” over all of the Game of Thrones costumes that were on display throughout the office.
Bethany, now a senior at Magnificat High School, said of her elementary experience, “LCA made me fall in love with learning. I was pushed to think differently and encouraged to think outside of the box. All of my teachers were invested in my education and helped me beyond the classroom. My LCA class as a whole had respect for one another, a value that was both regularly taught and practiced. I learned about my faith through the action of service and class projects. I attribute LCA to helping form the person I am today.”
