Abigail Truitt

SOCIAL AND DIGITAL MARKETING INTERN

Hi there! My name is Abigail Truitt and I am a senior studying Communications, with a minor in Women’s Studies, at Purdue University. Last September I began working at WBAA as a Social and Digital Marketing Intern. Over the last year I have helped plan events, make posts on the station’s Facebook and Twitter pages, as well as help build the newsletter and send out E-Blasts. I have a passion for writing, photography, yoga, and building relationships with people from all walks of life. I also love to travel and have been to seventeen differentcountries.Earlier this year, I began volunteering with ViaQuest Hospice Center in Lafayette. It has been a very rewarding experience and has allowed me to grow in areas that I did not imagine possible, just as this internship has. A year ago when I first introduced myself to you all, I said that I was uncertain as to where I saw myself upon graduation, but now I know that I would like to work for a non-profit organization, although, directly after graduation I am planning to volunteer overseas with an organization that helps to educate and empower women throughout the world. This internship has allowed me to gain tremendous knowledge and experience within numerous fields and I am so eager to apply my knowledge and skills to my future career. My email is truitt3@purdue.edu if you have any questions! I would love to hear from you!
