Please describe your summer at EA.
I can easily say that my summer here has shaped up to be the best period of my life so far. For background, I’m from central New Jersey -- a hop and a skip away from New York City -- and have never traveled to the West Coast. I had no idea what to expect. Thankfully, living in San Francisco and working at EA has been incredibly fulfilling, to the point where heading back to NJ and finishing my last year of school seems dull in comparison. Really, I just want to keep on doing this! Putting together what feels like a complex puzzle at work and hanging out with a passionate, smart group of friends after work feels pretty close to the dream for me.
You might make some amazing memories and friendships during college, but you’re still studying to become something greater in the future. The lifestyle here is really working for me. And I have had two other internships; this is the only time I have been so optimistic. Maybe there is something about this place. I think I get a sense of that work-life balance everyone is talking about …even though I would say it should also be work-life fulfillment (you want to have equal parts of each but it’s just as important to realize work and lifestyle to their full potentials). Getting a taste of the real world, I don’t know why it scared me all this time.
Tell us something we don't know about you.
If you ever run in to me, ask me to draw you a comic! One of my dreams is to have my own webcomic.
