Summer Intern Spotlight: David May

RLF’s internship program strives to offer students a holistic agency experience that exposes them to both the challenging and rewarding aspects of the communications industry. Throughout the course of a semester or longer, interns enhance their skill sets and acquire new knowledge to prepare for a career in public relations, marketing or advertising.
This summer, we are happy to have three new interns on board: David May, Julia Lescarbeau and Jasmine Forte. Our first intern spotlight is on David May.

“I’m from Chattanooga, Tennessee, and attend Elon University. I’m a student in the Love School of Business as a marketing major with an environmental science minor.”
What is your dream job?
My dream job is doing environmental communications for the Sierra Club. They do some pretty incredible things!
If you could live in another country where would you live?
I would live in Shanghai, China. But nowhere else in China.
What is your favorite song to sing in the shower?
Wagon Wheel by Old Crow Medicine Show! Classic.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I’m a mediocre juggler, but nothing else too crazy.
What is your favorite thing to snack on?
Peanut butter granola bars. Actually, just peanut butter.
What was the last concert you attended?
I attended a small show by the New Hires, a guitar and vocals duet. They were phenomenal.
What is something new you have recently tried or experienced?
I drove a U-Haul the other day, which was the first time I’ve ever driven a truck. I appreciate truck drivers MUCH more now.
Do you have any pets?
Just Shawn, a houseplant. But no, not any real ones, and I’m very sad about it.
If you could switch bodies with a celebrity for one day, who would it be and why?
Kevin Spacey, so I could be Frank Underwood from House of Cards for a day.
