Every summer RLF holds Intern Bootcamp Day to share best industry practices and teach vital skills to incoming interns. Team members give presentations in key areas such as social media, advertising, branding and media relations, often sharing examples from our current clients, to help better prepare our interns for the projects they will be tackling during the summer and give them more insight into how we approach the work we do.
This summer, we are excited to welcome three new interns to the team: Alex Rossetti, Jhanay Davis and Nick Ramsey. Our first spotlight is on Alex.
My name is Alex Rossetti and I am a rising senior at Elon University. I am majoring in strategic communications with double minors in business administration and psychology. I’m originally from Stamford, Connecticut, a large city about an hour outside out of New York City. Outside of my career in public relations, I am a highly competitive golfer and previously played for Elon’s varsity golf team.
If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go?
If I could travel anywhere in the world, I would have to visit St. Andrews, Scotland. It has been my dream to play The Old Course since I was a child. One of my friends recently attended St. Andrews University for a year and loved the area. The people are supposedly very nice and the sight seeing is unreal. It’s definitely on my bucket list.
Do you have any hidden talents?
I have mastered the art of cookie making! There are roughly five crucial steps in baking mouth-watering chocolate chip cookies. I wish I could disclose my secrets, but I am under strict orders from my grandma to keep them on the down low.
What activities or organizations are you involved in?
I am the manager of the Elon women’s basketball team. I assist with practices and help run the players through drills. I have always been an active person and love being a part of a team. I also am an account executive with Live Oak Communications, Elon’s own student-run public relations agency. We work with commercial clients on public relations and advertising projects.
If you had a theme song, what would it be?
If I had a theme song, it would have to be “All the Small Things” by Blink-182. They have always been my favorite band because their songs are fun and energetic. It was the first song I learned how to play on the guitar.
If you could have dinner with anyone, dead of alive, who would it be?
It would be a dream come true to have dinner with Arnold Palmer. He was arguably the greatest golfer of all time. He treats his fans well and gives back to the community frequently. His successful business ventures are well documented and he was a great spokesperson for his sponsors during his playing days. Of course we would wash down our meal with a cold glass of iced tea lemonade.
