Her Campus High School Ambassadors say:
Her Campus allowed me to get involved in the media industry from my small town as a high school student. The experience I've gained is invaluable; I've gained so many journalism and communications skills all from one place. Even as a High School Ambassador, I feel like a true part of a team. Though I do my work and communicate with the team on my computer, Her Campus is such an empowering and encouraging environment to be a part of. - Paige S., Her Campus High School Ambassador
Through the High School Ambassador program, I gained the opportunity to expand my writing skills. However, what I didn't expect was gaining valuable experience in the marketing and publicity sphere. The world of journalism is rapidly expanding, and many news source employers expect their journalists to play multiple roles - the story teller, the photographer, the marketer, the publicist. This program was useful to me because as a result of submitting different types of journalistic pieces, I achieved confidence as a writer. However, the most rewarding part was meeting incredibly talented girls throughout the world, co-writing with them on several occasions. - Julia S., Her Campus High School Ambassador
Being a part of the High School Ambassador program has done so much more for me than I could have ever imagined. As soon as we started, we were all making friends with girls across the country, which is really amazing. We learn new skills every week from the best of the best (how lucky are we?) and just being a member of this amazing group has opened so many doors for me already. My Her Campus High School Ambassador shirt is by far my most worn tshirt, and that's saying something. I love this experience, it's not worth trading! - Elena B., Her Campus High School Ambassador
Her Campus is not only a website that I am involved with, but also one I love to scroll through quite often. The High School Ambassador program has helped me in infinite ways to prepare for majoring in communications this fall, while the Blogger Network has connected me with bloggers who are passionate about similar topics as me. In college, I can see myself applying for an internship with Her Campus. If you are wondering whether you should get involved with Her Campus, I would encourage you to take the plunge! - Kimberly M., Her Campus High School Ambassador
HerCampus is truly the intern experience of a lifetime! The advisors ease high school ambassadors in to the process of public relations work and make a future in the field of communications seem possible and oh-so doable. HerCampus provides its members with fantastic opportunities and is a wonderful family to be a part of. I am so grateful to be on such a motivational team! - Gabrielle H., Her Campus High School Ambassador
Being a part of the high school ambassador program has been an incredible opportunity. Because of the experience I've gotten a local journalism job and an internship, as well as met a lot of wonderful girls and made so many valuable connections. The things we are taught were relevant and we were provided with so many cool opportunities, whether it be the chance to be part of the MTV insights team or to apply to an intern position at the Her Campus HQ. For a high school student, this program is one of a kind. - Erin M., Her Campus High School Ambassador
I have learned so much about writing, communications, marketing, and social media and it has helped me with some of my other internships, as well as opened up many new doors. The skills that I acquired through the High School Ambassador program are what helped me get my dream summer job as a 16 year old. I met so many people through the program and had so much fun during the year, and I am so grateful to be a part of the Her Campus team! - Arielle K., Her Campus High School Ambassador
