On Tuesday, November 5, T. Howard Foundation Internship Program alumni gathered in New York to mix and mingle.
The “Mix & Mingle” event was an opportunity for THF alumni in the tri-state area to get together to reconnect with former interns who first met during THF orientation sessions, and develop relationships with alumni from various THF classes.
Taylor Henriquez, THF ’10 and ’11, and current Public Relations Coordinator with A+E Networks, spearheaded the planning of the event. “This was a year in the making for me, and it was great to see friends–the people who will hopefully be in the upper echelon of the media industry some day.”
The group networked professionally, but for many attendees, the event served as a way to reconnect with old friends, many of whom are now employed full-time in the media industry.
Look for more alumni events in the near future, as an official THF alumni network is currently being formed.
