Embarking on a silent retreat in California without uttering a word for 10 days. Enlisting a Hawaiian woman to learn about the history and culture of the islands before swimming with sea turtles. Approaching a homeless man in Oregon, and chipping away at his rough exterior to reveal a softhearted romantic pining for his lost love.    

This isn’t how most people spend their summer internship.

But this wasn’t your ordinary internship. I just finished my stint as Golin’s first “Untern.” That means I got paid to blog about my unconventional adventures before starting an entry-level job at Golin, a global communications agency, in Dallas.
