Stow talks about her Spring internship at GraySquare and what she is looking forward to during this experience.

Elizabeth Stow Weiss – Social Media and Administration Intern

Tell us about yourself, what school do you attend, your major, and any extracurricular activities?
Hi Everyone! My name is Elizabeth Weiss, but I go by my middle name which is Stow. I’m a sophomore Marketing major with a Graphic Design minor at Saint Joseph’s University in Philadelphia, PA, where I also play Division I tennis. 

What brought you to GraySquare?
I first found GraySquare on my university’s career website, Handshake. I’ve always been interested in social media management, so the job description was perfect for the type of career I want to explore. 

What do you like about your internship opportunity?
What I like most about what this internship offers me is the opportunity to have creative freedom when creating content for GraySquare’s social media platforms. I’ve always loved creating original content, and this internship provides me exactly that experience in a professional setting.

How would you like this experience to shape or impact your career goals?
Overall, I hope this internship provides a positive experience for me and gives me the clarity I need in pursuing this type of career. As a college sophomore, my career path is cloudy and very uncertain in what I want to pursue. I’m hoping this internship will give me the answers I need early in my college career so I can continue perfecting and improving my skills for my future jobs. 

Goal(s) for 2021.
My goals for 2021 would be to perform to the best of my abilities in my academics, sport, in this internship and continue pursuing the things that make me happy. I’m also an avid photographer so improving upon that and finding more time to do it would be another goal of mine. 

Stow runs a 5k called Run for Robbie every year starting since 2019.

Tell us something that might surprise us about you.
One thing that usually shocks most people is that I’m an avid grunge and rock music fan! My favorite genre is 90’s grunge, which is something that I like to say I’ve been listening to since before I was even born because my parents would constantly play it for me. My very first concert I ever attended was a Foo Fighters concert with my older sister, and I still think it’s the best concert I’ve ever been to!

Your favorite quote that inspires you.
My favorite quote that inspires me is
“When you get into a tight place and everything goes against you, till it seems as though you could not hang on a minute longer, never give up then, for that is just the place and time that the tide will turn.”
-Harriet Beecher Stowe
